From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-5?Hank the cowdog and his pal Drover are surprised by a terrible storm while they sleep. Mistaking it for an alien invasion, they finagle their way into the ranch owners' house. When a tornado is predicted, the family takes shelter in the cellar. The two canines find themselves lifted into the center of the tornado, along with cows, buzzards, etc., and gently deposited into the branches of a tree. This thinly plotted story starts out incoherently and, although it gets better, it is a case of too little too late. The author attempts to use language creatively, but ultimately fails. The descriptions of the confusion caused by the thunder and lightning are ineffective, partly because Hank and Drover speak and act more like war veterans going through a flashback than domestic animals in the throes of a storm. Their conversations, and also those among the other animals in the tornado's funnel cloud, are silly and unbelievable, as are the characterizations.?Carrie A.
