Publisher's Description

A summer storm brings relief from the heat—and a surprise—to a farm family.

It's a hot day on the farm, and a little girl, her brother, and their mother are trying to cool off by the pond. Suddenly, dark clouds roll in. A thunder-boomer is on the way! The storm brings pounding rain and hail—and an unexpected visitor: a soggy wet stray kitten. Colorful descriptions of the storm are accompanied by lots of playful sound effects, making this free-verse poem perfect for reading aloud. Charming watercolor illustrations capture all the drama, humor, and tenderness of the text.

“Vivid imagery and Thompson’s innovative mixed-media art that incorporates textual sound effects naturally reflect the weather’s dramatic ebb and flow.”—Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review

“This fine-tuned, occasionally funny picture book re-creates the satisfying drama of a summer storm.”—Booklist
