Most curious of all, the storm drops a "strange little animal, all pink skin and bones, lying in a heap against a hollow log." Its fur or feathers have been plucked clean by the tornado, and no one can guess what nature of odd animal the "Windblown Child" is. Everyone is in for a huge and wondrous surprise.
In these six broad comedies, Newbery Medal winner Sid Fleischman again proves himself to be a wizard of the American tall tale.
