A young boy and his family barricade their home against an encroaching Hurricane. The winds roar while the boy sleeps, dreaming of the dock where he spends lazy summer days swimming and playing. When dawn arrives, he is distressed to find his beloved dock in disrepair, but develops a more hopeful outlook by joining other community members in rebuilding. In almost photo-realistic artwork, Rocco uses color to transport the reader through the darkness of the hurricane and into the light of renewed hope. Fans of Rocco’s Blackout and Blizzard will delight in his newest picture book.

Wolf!, winner of the Borders Original Voices Award for best picture book; Moonpowder; Blizzard; and Blackout, a winner of the Caldecott Honor.
