Praise for Twister

“In this vividly written story, Natt and Lucille learn that life can change with terrifying rapidity when, on a lovely summer day as they are playing outdoors, an onrushing tornado drives them into the storm cellar . . . [They] emerge into the sunlight to find the ground covered with ice diamonds and everyone safe.” – Starred, School Library Journal

“Beard’s lyrical descriptions of Natt and Lucille’s experiences lend a you-are-there immediacy to the tale, while Carpenter’s generously colored artwork vibrates with the intensity of nature unleashed . . . A rousing tale.” – Kirkus Reviews
