Book Reviews - The Weather Detectives by Mark Eubank

US Kirkus Review » Travel around the planet and beyond at lightning speed with three kids, investigating weather phenomena like the causes of tornadoes, hurricanes, ice and hail storms, flash floods, Northern Lights, and more. Meteorologist Eubank includes plenty of oddities-raining frogs and hailstones as big as baseballs-as well as useful information: tips for tornadoes, highest and lowest recorded temperatures, and some simple experiments to make sense of weather systems. Without index or sources, though, the serious weather researcher will need to look elsewhere, but the title, which reads like an early chapter book, will spark the interest of science enthusiasts. Cartoon-like watercolor-and-pen drawings show an interracial trio of elementary-age kids interviewing experts and getting in the middle of weird weather. Kids are upbeat, enthusiastic, and curious, except for Rudy, the poor redhead who spends most of his time whining, hiding under chairs, or pacing nervously; maybe next time they should leave him at home. For the popular-science section. (Nonfiction. 8-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
