Description


A storm is brewing and the wind is picking up, so a boy and his grandfather decide it's the perfect weather for kite flying. There’s just one problem: they have to find the kite! Their search brings up many wonderful memories of previous adventures together, and when they finally make it outside, their adventure really takes off!

About the Author


Sam Usher’s first book, Can You See Sassoon?, was long-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal. He is also the author and illustrator of Snow, Rain, and Sun, the companion books to Storm, the first of which was long-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal. He lives in England.

Praise For…


Throughout, Usher's watercolor-and-ink illustrations adopt a style similar to Quentin Blake's, and his shifting use of color, light, and shadow evokes excitement, peril, and finally the safety and security of the kitchen with the storm raging outside. It's a gentle home-away-home story tied up with a cozy message delivered by Granddad at the end: "The best adventure is an adventure shared."...It follows, perhaps, that the best picture books are those, like this, that beg to be shared, as well.
