Set in rural Newfoundland and Labrador, Jack and the Hurricane follows young, willful Jack on his adventure to save his cousin's birthday party, no matter what Mother Nature has in store. Despite the appeals of neighbours, firefighters and even the army, Jack sets out into a world that is falling down around him, yet his determination and imagination keep him moving forward. The hurricane increases in strength and damage as Jack journeys to brighten the day for his family members. It's a story about determination, risk and caring, all wrapped up in wind, rain, flooding and power outages. An engaging read for children of all ages, Jack and the Hurricane is a story of family, friends and purpose that will tickle your funny bone and delight your heart.

Editorial Review

"The images are vibrant and colourful, and the facial expressions tell their own stories as they capture the wildness of the storm, the bewilderment of the various people Jack meets and his grandmother's tremendous relief to find him safe. An entertaining tale( that left this reader yearning for cupcakes!) - Lisa Doucet, Atlantic Books Today

The father and son duo that created this picture book have done a great job in depicting the effects of a hurricane. The illustrations are quite detailed, playful, and vibrant, while still depicting the action of the tremendous storm. Thebook also features an addendum with factual information about hurricanes, particularly Hurricane Igor, which swept across Newfoundland and Labrador in 2010. Nicole Rowlinson, Resource Links.
