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 the family quickly gathers into the storm cellar. The storm rages outside, but Pete, the farmhand, knows this is the perfect time to tell his stories about a dog named Tornado.
Blown into their lives by a twister when Pete was a boy, Tornado was no ordinary dog--he played card tricks, saved a turtle's life, and had a rivalry with the family cat.
Forgetting their fear, the family hangs on every word of Pete's stories--both happy and sad--of this remarkable dog.
