“An effective read-aloud to spark discussions about weather or ways to deal with storms and the fears they might evoke.”  —School Library Journal

“Good for reading aloud, this fine picture book chronicles the passage of a powerful storm in words and pictures that create a mood as well as describe events… The artwork as a whole is as evocative as the verse, and the illustrations of the landscape and stormy sky are compelling.” —Booklist

"ZAP!
One hundred million volts.
Cloud to ground
Advancing bolts."

Thunderstorms in the Midwest come on hard and fast. Vast stretches of farmland make a perfect backdrop for remarkable displays of lightning against dramatically darkened skies—an awe-inspiring sight. Here, Denise Dowling Mortensen’s lyrical verse and stunning paintings by Kate Kiesler work together to vividly and memorably bring the speed and drama of a flash storm on an Ohio farm to life.
