H-o-o-o-o Hummmm. It's another pleasant day in a quiet town, until a blustery gust whooshes in and causes quite a stir! As the townfolk lament the whirling wedding cakes, airborne alarm clocks, and bouncing bananas, one little boy thinks to greet this wonderful wind and gets a taste of how wide and exciting the world can be. Award-winning illustrator G. Brian Karas wreaks magnificient havoc in this wise story of routine turned upside down.
