Booklist Reviews 2020 May #1

In a little, roadless community, where rolling hills are dotted with small houses and punctuated by a lighthouse at the edge of the sea, foxes perk their ears at the sound of rumbling thunder, while indoors, a family brings out candles and a radio. A boy and his dog run home, while fishes dive deep and seagulls shelter in a cove. "Then lightning cracks, / And thunder ROARS— / It shakes the shutters, rattles doors. / The rain pours down. / The sky turns slate . . . / We hunker down to watch and wait." After the storm, animals emerge and so do people, hauling away debris, checking on neighbors, and getting together for food and conversation outdoors. The author of many picture books, Ashman once again shows her sure hand in writing rhymed verse that flows well and provides a satisfying narrative. Yoo's colorful, expressive illustrations, created with pencil and digital elements, dramatize the storm's power as well as its effects on people and animals. A fine read-aloud choice with many visual details to observe and discuss. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2020 #3

"What do you do when the clouds roll in, / when the wind chimes clang and the weather vanes spin?" This engaging picture book describes the reactions of the denizens, human and otherwise, of a small seaside community as a storm approaches, rages, and abates. People head indoors, birds take shelter under eaves, bees return to the hive, rabbits huddle in a hollow log. Digital and pencil illustrations begin with a subdued palette, darken to deep purples and grays mid-storm, then switch to cheerful hues in its aftermath. The scenes range from cozy to dramatic-especially on a striking double-page spread of the storm at its height, lightning flashing and forking. The lilting, lively verse is unfailingly appealing. "What do you do when the storm has passed- / When the sun comes out and it's calm at last? // We leave our dens. / We scout. / We fly. / We shake, shake, shake until we're dry" -- that last referring to an adorable beagle drying off in the time-honored doggy way. The same animals and humans recur, allowing viewers to keep track of their favorites throughout the book. Martha V. Parravano May/June 2020 p.90 Copyright 2020 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

PW Reviews 2020 March #5

"What do you do when the clouds roll in,/ When the wind chimes clang and the weather vanes spin?" In verse that rolls like a sea shanty, Ashman (Take Your Pet to School Day) watches as animals and people ride out a storm. Bad weather looms even on the copyright page: trees blow sideways, and gray clouds threaten a peaceful blue sky. As the story begins, a girl looks out her window with a worried expression. A family of foxes watches expectantly, too: "We watch./ We sniff./ We perk our ears,/ And listen as the rumbling nears." A child runs home as a parent beckons. While humans take shelter ("We close. We cover,/ Latch and tie"), gulls seek coves and whales dive deep. Pencil and digital spreads by Yoo (Kitten and the Night Watchman) have a hand-worked feel, with loosely drawn lines and sponge print textures that suggest the advancing pressure and glad release of a storm passing. Final spreads show the ocean-adjacent community cleaning up, then gathering for refreshments. The emphasis is clear; in the face of natural forces, human and animal communities are alike in their vulnerability. Ages 3–7. Author's agent: Jennifer Mattson, Andrea Brown Literary. Illustrator's agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (May)
