The mayor says he is going to prevent tornadoes from happening. He hires a tornado tamer, a weasel. The weasel uses an invisible cloth to make a cover, so tornadoes will bounce right off. People who are “very smart and special” can see the cover. The animals don’t see the cover, but they act like they do, because they want to be smart and special. They give the weasel a lot of money and food. A tornado comes, and everything gets destroyed. This story is like The Emperor’s New Clothes, only with a cover, not clothes.
I like the mouse character. He doesn’t believe there is really a magic cover. He also knows a lot about tornadoes. I like how the animals talk. I like the picture where the weasel is really fat. The clothes the animals are wearing are funny. They are dressed like cowboys, western people. There are lots of facts and an experiment in the back. I like that!
People who are interested in tornadoes will like this book. This book is fun and exciting. It’s funny when they carry around the invisible cover.
