Hurricane! by Celia Godkin

On Resource Links Best of 2008 ListAlong Floridas coast, people board up their homes and the animals head inland. A hurricane is bearing down on the coast. When it reaches land, howling winds uproots trees and homes with equal ease. A storm surge devastates the town. Then, after the eerie quiet of the hurricanes eye, the winds howl again, toppling structures that had survived the first onslaught and washing away the remains.Even as the last of the storm dies down, the process of renewal gradually begins. In the face of a massive disaster, the people, the animals, and the land itself will always find a way to survive and triumph once more.Award-winning author/illustrator Celia Godkin is known for her childrens books that explore natures remarkable ability to renew itself. In this stunning new book, she has chosen the Florida coast to show that even a hurricanes most destructive force is an integral part of a thriving ecosystem.Celia Godkin trained as a biologist and worked as a scientific illustrator. An illustration job preparing signs for the Winnipeg zoo led to a collaboration on the book Endangered Species: Canadas Disappearing Wildlife. Encouraged by this success Celia illustrated an ecology story she had written years earlier and showed it to her publisher. The resulting book, Wolf Island, won the Childrens Literature Roundtables Best Information Book Award and was the first of six (so far) beautiful and informative books that explore natures remarkable ability to renew itself. The others include Ladybug Garden, Sea Otter Inlet, When the Giant Stirred, and Fire!, which was short-listed for several awards including the Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children_s Non-Fiction. Celia now lives in an old farmhouse in Eastern Ontario.
