A wonderfully bold and dramatically illustrated story of animals in the countryside and the effect on them of a coming storm. It has the simplest of plots; one after another the creatures find shelter while the storm sweeps over them, then they emerge into the clear air and sunshine. With good print and straightforward language, the whole book is a gem of colour and drama to entice any young child into language and design. I hope the publishers have shot the soulless lackey who thought a book like this deserved to be described as 'suitable for the National Curriculum Science Level Two'.
