“The Longest Storm” feels like a validation—a blessing, even.” — Wall Street Journal

This heartwarming family story from acclaimed author-illustrator Dan Yaccarino features a father and his kids who are stuck inside the house together and figure out how to connect and overcome conflict. A New York Public Library 2021 Best Books for Kids selection.

No one knew where the strange storm came from, or why it lasted so long. The family at the center of this timely story has to hunker down together, with no going outside - and that's hard when there's absolutely nothing to do, and everyone's getting on everyone else's nerves.

This classic in the making will lift hearts with its optimistic vision of a family figuring out how to love and support one another, even when it seems impossible.
