KIRKUS REVIEW

 A little boy observes the wind's different moods in each of the four seasons. Brief and strongly patterned, Carlstrom's poetic text has lots of alliteration and some subtle internal rhymes. Ray's full-bleed acrylic paintings are impressionistic: crisscrossed strokes of fiery orange suggest a pile of autumn leaves; bright white shapes billowing over sky blue make clothes whipping on a line; the palest bands of color form sky, sea, and shore in a hazy, dead-calm summer scene. With great economy, both author and artist have achieved wonderfully evocative effects. Pair this lovely mood piece with Marie Hall Ets's Gilbert and the Wind (1963). (Picture book. 4-8)
