STARRED REVIEW! "An artful blend of language, illustration, and science."--Kirkus Reviews starred review
You can almost feel the wind in this explanation of the Beaufort scale, with science and rhythmic verse.
The stages of the Beaufort wind scale, portrayed with precision and also with poetic free verse, style, and imagination. It will stretch readers' imaginations as we see the wind pick up from a kiss of air, to a gentle breeze that shivers the shifting grasses, to a roiling hurricane that makes tree roots shudder.
