about

From Newbery Medal-winning author Betsy Byars comes a sweet, entertaining story that will touch the heart of dog lovers at any age.

A tornado appears in the distance, and Pete, the farmhand, gathers everyone into the storm cellar. While they wait for the storm to pass, he tells the family about a tornado that struck when he was a boy—a twister that blew in a doghouse, complete with a dog inside!

Pete tells everyone how he soon learned that this dog, whom he named Tornado, was no ordinary dog—he played card tricks, once saved a turtle′s life, and had a life-long rivalry with the family cat. By the time Pete tells all of Tornado′s remarkabe stories, the storm has passed, and Tornado's antics have entertained another family of farmers.

Betsy Byars is a widely read and loved author of many award-winning middle-grade books for children, including Summer Of The Swans (Viking), a 1971 Newbery Medal winner. The Pinballs was an ALA Notable Children's Book in 1977 as well as the basis for an ABC Afterschool Special. Other books she has written for HarperCollins are Good-bye...
