A summer storm brings relief from the heat--and a surprise--to a farm family.

It's a hot day on the farm, and a little girl, her brother, and their mother are trying to cool off by the pond. Suddenly, dark clouds roll in. A thunder-boomer is on the way! The storm brings pounding rain and hail--and an unexpected visitor: a soggy wet stray kitten. Colorful descriptions of the storm are accompanied by lots of playful sound effects, making this free-verse poem perfect for reading aloud. Charming watercolor illustrations capture all the drama, humor, and tenderness of the text.

Thunder-Boomer! The title and cover caught my attention. When I opened the cover I was disappointed. This book does tell the story of a prairie thunderstorm; but it is wordy. The sketched illustrations lack clarity and appeal.

Lyrical free verse , appealing sound effects , and great illustrations combine to tell the story of a summer storm that brings welcome relief from the heat and dryness , and a very special surprise . Quite a good , touching story.
