    " The least interesting David Wiesner book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanja | 2/3/2014

    " The story is inspired by true events and therefore a great example to share with children when for example talking about how writers get their ideas. The illustrations are as always superb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 1/29/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this book during weather units in my elementary school classes! Neat pictures and cute story here. Eventhough I love a good storm, my favorite scenes in this book are when the two boys are enjoying the fallen tree. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/25/2014

    " David Wiesner is best when he writes the least and draws the most. There are picture books and then there are David Weisner's picture books. His books are top quality. This is no exception. Thank you for a wonderful story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Libby | 1/20/2014

    " Didn't really care for the story - didn't leave a lasting impression. However, his artwork is fabulous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/8/2014

    " Wiesner takes us into the power, impact and effects of a hurricane, creating an altered landscape that fuels the characters' imaginations around a fallen tree. And with them, we can feel the ase which leads them to say, "It just feels good being here." Brings to mind NOT A STICK. Even the family cat gets a moment of imagination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/4/2014

    " From the book, "Summary: The morning after a hurricane, two brother find an uprooted tree which becomes a magical place, transporting them on adventures limited only by their imaginations." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol Mcgloshen | 12/22/2013

    " The illustrations were done well, but the story was fairly boring. There isn't much detail about what happens during a hurricane. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexus Rodriguez | 12/3/2013

    " This book was very fun and had some imagination to it. It's about two boys David and George who stay inside their house during a storm. When a tree gets in the way, they are forced to place their imaginations into a place they are not yet expected to be in yet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 12/2/2013

    " Two brothers and their cat experience a hurricane and its aftermath. Lovely illustrations. Lacks the humor of Tuesday and some of Weisner's other works, but love the fantastical imaginings regardless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen Brandt | 4/5/2013

    " Connects the Grade 2 weather unit with my 'use you imagination' theme. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Weikert | 1/4/2013

    " Good for fourth graders. Teaches kids about storms and that even though they can be scary there is nothing to worry about. Also has the characters playing pretend, good for kids to determine what is real and what is pretend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inspired Kathy | 7/9/2012

    " After a hurricane knocks down a tree 2 brothers use their imagination for lots of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Hochstrasser | 2/13/2012

    " A truly awesome book and fine illustrations for ages 6 and up. What can a downed tree turn into, given a child's imagination? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marya DeVoto | 10/4/2011

    " This picture book ony gets four stars because it's not as sublimely wacky as its predecessors, but anyone who gives a shit about art should be reading Wiesner, especially Tuesday and Flotsam. "

    " So "imaginative"-- great supplement to severe weather nonfiction stuff "

    " An elm tree that fell one night during a hurricane becomes a place of creativity and wonder for two boys. They spend hours in make believe adventures until the workmen come to saw the tree up and remove it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karissa | 4/24/2010

    " Wiesner illustrates a childhood memory in this book, and unlike most of his picture books, there is text to narrate the story. This would be a good book for children to write a continuation of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 3/30/2010

    " Good book, but not as good as his other efforts. "

    " 2009 April 02

    The actual storm is dull and over-written for Wiesner, but the marvelous tree adventures are still worth it. Not my favorite, though. "
