|The Storm Wrangler is a mythic figure, a Paul Bunyan type, whose work is protecting us from the power of big weather: thunderstorms, tornadoes, blue northers, blizzards and anything that the sky can conjure up. He brings the legendary feeling of the old Wild West, its vast landscapes and huge weather patterns, brilliantly to life. Weather is awe-inspiring, and young readers will delight in meeting someone big and brave enough to put himself in the middle of it all. When the Storm Wrangler is around, fear turns to awe as the fascinating details of each unique type of storm come to life. Most importantly, the Storm Wrangler delivers the promise of the calm that comes after every storm. Told in energetic rhymes that convey the energy of building tempests, the derring-do of the Storm Wrangler and the beauty of the rich weather language, this tale is sure to bring little heads out from under the covers to hear it again and again until the sun comes out from behind the clouds.
Storm Wrangler also includes a glossary of weather terms.
