The sky darkens and the wind picks up. A spinning cloud touches the ground, tossing roofs, cars, and trees skyward. A tornado is on the move.
In Tornado, you'll learn about what causes dangerous swirling storms--from waterspouts to violent twisters. Amazing photographs and a clearly written text explain what happens inside the storm clouds and give you tips about how to stay safe--even if you live in "Tornado Alley."

a feast for the eyes of young and old alike."--Bulletin of the American
"...Kramer explains in an easy-to-read, straightforward style what tornadoes are and how they differ from other windstorms."--Appraisal
