Gr 2-4This funny beginning chapter book will keep readers laughing even after the story is finished. There is a problem in the town of Callender Hillit's spring and there is absolutely no wind. Meanwhile, on the Blow Me Down Sideways Wind Farm, where customers can buy all kinds of breezes, Professor Sniff is worried about the shortage and is sure that something fishy is going on. The mystery is solved when the baby hurricane that the professor picked up on a trip to Florida is seen consuming every stray breeze. The storm grows stronger and stronger, breaks out of its storage shed, eventually earns the name Typhoon Trevor, and heads out for a romp through the countryside, with the agitated professor following close behind. The story has a strong plot that will hold readers' interest. Each character has lots of personality and ridiculous quirks. Miss Endicott, an elderly lady with a cat named Fido, tries to return her wind chimes and insists that the wind should be included with the purchase. Children will be amused by the descriptions of the different types of wind produced on the farm, such as burps, sighs, slurps, and hiccups. The black-and-white sketches are an added bonus, providing amusing glances at the action. A great addition to the humor section.Evelyn Butrico, Cold Spring Harbor Library, Greenlawn, NY
