Product Description

The night of the hurricane is one that David and George will never forget. Even though they were safe inside with their mom and dad and Hannibal the cat, the raging winds outside could put fear into the most fearless. The next day, though, was even more memorable. A fallen tree became the threshold of limitless voyages of the imagination - voyages the two brothers shared as only close friends can.

Publisher's Description

When a storm is raging, David and George are glad to be inside the house, snug and safe. In this spectacular picture book by Caldecott Honor recipient David Wisener, a fallen tree becomes the threshold to the limitless voyage of the imagination, which David and George share as only true friends--and brothers--can.

Author Bio

David Wiesner's interest in visual storytelling dates back to high school days when he made silent movies and drew wordless comic books. Born and raised in Bridgewater, New Jersey, he graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. While a student, he created a painting nine feet long, which he now recognizes as the genesis of Free Fall, his first book of his own authorship, for which he was awarded a Caldecott Honor Medal in 1989. David won his first Caldecott Medal in 1992 for Tuesday, and he has gone on to win twice more: in 2002 for The Three Pigs and in 2007 for Flotsam. He is only the second person in the award’s history to win the Caldecott Medal three times. David and his wife, Kim Kahng, and their two children live near Philadelphia, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues her career as a surgeon.

Editorial Reviews

"Wiesner captures perfectly the aura of a giant storm from a child's perspective. A family weathers a hurricane; the next day, in the post-hurricane yard, the two boys in the family play on a great fallen elm, imagining it to be a jungle, a pirate ship, and a space ship. A handsome book, affording opportunities for sharing fears and dreams of adventure." -- Copyright © 1991 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved. Horn Book

"We wouldn't wish a real hurricane on children, but this book will give them a taste of the magic of the moment when the lights go out." School Library Journal, Starred
