Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 044981016X, Hardcover)Publishing in time for the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, here is a beautiful read-aloud about animal families preparing for an impending storm in their bayou habitat.
Journey to the Louisiana wetlands and watch as all the animals of the bayou experience one of nature’s most dramatic and awe-inspiring events: a hurricane. The animals prepare—swimming for safer seas, finding cover in dens, and nestling their young close to protect them. During the height of the storm, even the trees react, cracking and moaning in the wind. At last, the hurricane yawns and rests, and animals come out to explore their world anew.

Various wetland creatures, from alligators to egrets, enjoy what begins as a calm and peaceful day in the bayou, then prepare for and endure a passing hurricane, and finally settle in for a peaceful night.
