KIRKUS REVIEW

A boy is late to school, but he has an explanation: It was the wind! Needless to say, his teacher doesn’t believe him, but the boy elaborates nonetheless. First, the wind snatched all of his mother’s laundry, and he had to collect it. Then the wind blew dandelions into a mountain, and he had to climb it. Next, the wind opened the doors to a hat store, and the hats went everywhere. Of course, the hats had to be gathered up. Then traffic signs were flying! Stray cats and dogs were being deposited into grocery bags! Chickens and roosters were floating in air! Next, some fog blew in, and the boy got lost. When the fog cleared, the wind seized the boy and brought him down at the school. By this point, the boy’s teacher has had enough. She’ll take a look outside and find out just what’s going on. But maybe that isn’t such a good idea. . . . Lively charcoal-and-acrylic illustrations and sprightly text portray this adventurous young student on a most unusual day. (Picture book. 4-6)
