KIRKUS REVIEW

The pictures by Margaret Bloy Graham tell the story of the accompanying text -- and for my part tell it better than the text does. A small boy is looking the landscape over on a hot summer's day when the first indications of a storm appear. He runs home and in his mother's understanding company experiences his first thunder storm. There are flash impressions of what the storm is doing in the city- on the waters- but the author- and the artist-bring the reader back to the country as the storm breaks and a rainbow appears. Traditional explanations will irk the science-minded modern, who will feel the book is too prettily sentimental. Paper over board perishable despite the cloth spine and reinforced stitching.
