STORM, by Sam Usher, Templar Books/Candlewick Press


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!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Let’s discuss this cover first. Can we say Beautiful!!! It’s hard to see in the photo above, but many of the leaves are actually raised and the colors are far more vibrant than shown above. Just stunning!

Templar Publishing sure got it right!

Inside, the illustrations are just as vibrant and large, often filling the whole page with action, color and imagination.  This story is about spending time with grandfather during a storm and how a storm isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The approach and story-line are fantastic and as a hardcover, this book is a guaranteed classic in the making, if you ask me. I love the presentation, the artwork and mostly the story-line. All come together in a childhood keepsake.

Well done!
