A hypnotic story about what happens when a child's imagination greets the wind as it whistles past the house at night. Gred Budig's musical prose and provocative illustrations invite the reader to see the invisible wind by listening to the sounds the wind makes. In every image, Budig at once conveys the wind's menace and charm. In this age of interactive books, Greg Budig's instant classic reminds us that all fine children's books engage us as willing participants. The story of the wind urges the reader to go beyond the train tracks and the tops of trees. It finds the wind in the tilt of a feathe rand the powerful wave's curl.
