9780688129774: Hurricane!

"The power, danger, and excitement of a hurricane are brought to life in this picture book." (School Library Journal)

Told from the perspective of a boy who witnesses the sky growing ominously purple and rushes to evacuate with his family, Hurricane! is set in Puerto Rico and based on a childhood experience of the author's.

The family huddles together in a shelter while the winds howl. They and their neighbors take solace from gently singing "Silent Night" while waiting out the storm.

The you-are-there immediacy of this picture book, which ends with the family back home on a gorgeous sunny day, allows children to safely experience the drama of surviving a hurricane.

From the Inside Flap:

Batten down the hatches! There's a storm brewing!

One moment, the sun is shining on the slopes of El Yunque, the largest mountain in eastern Puerto Rico. The next, everything has changed. The sky has turned deep purple, and you feel as if the air has been sucked from your lungs. That can mean only one thing: A hurricane is coming!

On a wild, storm-wracked night, a young boy and his family face danger together and are drawn closer to one another and their community. This true-to-life adventure, illustrated with vibrant oil paintings by Henri Sorensen, is based on Jonathan London's experiences surviving a hurricane as a boy.

From the Back Cover:

One moment the sun is shining on the slopes of El Yunque, the largest mountain in eastern Puerto Rico. The next, everything has changed. The sky has turned deep purple, and you feel as if the air has been sucked from your lungs. That can mean only one thing: A hurricane is coming!
