thunder from the sea is a science fiction novel. It is about a boy named Tom who gets adopted by a couple who's names are Enoch and Fiona. THey dont have any children so Tom usually just plays with the kids in the neighborhood. One of the boys names is Bert and he is very mean. One day, when tom is fishing with Enoch and some neighbors he rescues a newfoundland dog from a storm . He names him Thunder. What he didnt know was how great of a dog thunder could be. The neighbors claimed that they spotted the dog first and they were angry with Tom, especially Bert. When a terrible storm is coming and fiona is expecting a baby soon, it is thunder to the rescue! to find out what happens next youll just have to read the book!Now, there are many posotives and negatives about this book. Some things that I liked were that it had a great storyline, It was very well written, it was a good legnth (not too long and not too short), and it was very exciting. One thing that I wasnt so crazy about was the character Bert. I thought he was a little to mean and obnoxious and I would of liked if you could see the other side of him. Also, I thought it was a little unrealistic how tom found Thunder. I think that if it was a rapid storm and a dog was swimming for it's life in the water it would of dround. Next, I would like to comment on the Writing style of the author. I think that the writing style of Joan Haitt Harlow is very formal. She wrote with vocabulary for ages ten to fourteen, so i think that her writing is a little advanced for some people. Also, I think that Joan writes with a very fluid style. I would highly reccomend this book to any dog lovers. Thunder from the Sea is adventurous, exciting, funny, and it will cheer you up when you are down. This book is good for if you are board or just want to escape into your own little world. I hope you enjoyed my review and will want to read this magnifiscent book!

Thunder from the Sea is so wonderful and full of adventures that you would like to read it forever and forever. My mom had to force me to stop reading. The book has happy moments because in this one part the real owner of Thunder gave Tom the dog and just left in his boat. The very sad moment was when Tom couldn¿t find Thunder for days and Tom was miserable for those couple of days, with the awesome characters Tom, Enoch, Fiona, and Thunder. Tom is a 12 or 13 year old boy who goes fishing with Enoch in a storm. He finds a dog in the middle of the ocean who can predict bad weather. The dog has a white streak in the center of his chest. This good book took place in an island called Back o` the Moon Island. This book relates to me because one time I wanted a dog so badly. I found one at the park. We had to return him to his owner. That is how this book relates to me. I would recommend this book to my mom and my big brother because I know that they like these books and because they read these books a lot.

I would give this book the best award it could have! It is sad that a person, Mr.Fowler comes to get him but very happy that he lets Tom keep Thunder. It is strange that they found Thunder in th sea, but they are right that he looks like thunder and has a white streak that looks like lightning. I love this book, I could read it over and over again! Joan Hiatt Harlow is my favorite author. I can say so much more about this book, and i will. It is shocking that Thunder warned them about a tidal wave an earth quake and got Fiona to the docter when she was about to have a baby. Thunder is the best dog a person could have. 'characters:Murrays=Fiona, Enoch, Tom, Thunder And April Bosworths=Bert, Amos, Ruby, and Nancy Rideouts=Ken, Margeret, Rowena And Eddie).

Thunder from the sea is a great book based on a friendship between an orphaned boy and a dog found lost at sea. Tom the main Character Was adopted from an orphanage. He found a dog named Thunder who had been lost at sea for hours. Tom met Bert, who was a mean little kid. I like the parts were they fight over Thunder and He bites Bert's leg, which was funny. Thunder decides who he wants to be with, but Bert's dad was not happy he set out to find Thunders real owner If It was the last thing he did. Amos did not find the real owner. He said that he needed the dog. I think that was a lie, I think he tried to find the real owner because he was jealous that Tom had the dog and him and Bert didn't. I recommend this book to all who like to read, I'm not that much into reading but this was a great book.
