The stages of the Beaufort wind scale, portrayed with precision and also with poetic free verse, style, and imagination.
This book will stretch readers' imaginations as we see the wind pick up from a kiss of air, to a gentle breeze that shivers the shifting grasses, to a roiling hurricane that makes tree roots shudder.
