Average Rating
Pub. Date:

A Caldecott Honor book about a little boy's curiosity during a summer storm, poetically written by celebrated author Charlotte Zolotow and with stunning illustrations by Margaret Bloy Graham.

This beautifully crafted story is perfect to pull out and enjoy on rainy days and for classroom discussions on weather patterns.

It is a day in the country.

Quiet, dusty, expectant.

Everything is hot and still.

Then the hazy sky begins to shift.

Something is astir, something soundless.

Shadows move over the world.

And then it happens!

Shooting through the sky like starlight...

What was that?
