The morning after a hurricane two brothers discover a fallen tree… but is it just a tree?

The night of the hurricane is one that David and George will never forget. When it hits David and George's house they stay snuggled up inside with their cat until it's all over. The next morning they spot a fallen tree which sparks their imagination; they embark on expeditions through the jungle and ride the seas on a pirate ship.

An incredible adventure from multi-award-winning Wiesner.

Reviews

Wiesner’s detailed, exquisitely rendered paintings draw the reader into his story of a hurricane’s progress with all the sweep and immediacy of a film sequence. . . . This is an exuberant, absorbing slice of life.

Publishers Weekly

We wouldn't wish a real hurricane on children, but this book will give them a taste of the magic of the moment when the lights go out.
