Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. Shearer's story is a lighthearted spoof about the three Summer children, whose parents, weather forecasters by profession, leave them for a different climate. The children decide to make their living by not only forecasting weather but making and selling it as well. Getting directions from a book tucked away in the attic, they attempt to create all kinds of weather for sale to the adventurous public. A snag occurs when one of the dances they must perform to create the weather inadvertently eliminates the sun's light. They struggle to right their mistake, and the tale concludes with the Summer children in another jam and the reader left anticipating a sequel. The book will be fun for those able to suspend reality and enjoy an imaginative tale. Black-and-white illustrations throughout enhance the story. (Reviewed April 15, 1998)0531300803Susan DeRonne"
