Item description

Chinook!Tales of the Hot Winds of the Pacific Northwest by Michael O.Tunnell;Barry Root, illustrator. First Edition; 1993 HCDJ. In his children's book debut, Tunnell tells of the great, hot winds that tear through the winter countryside of the Pacific Northwest. A brother and sister recently moved to that region meet Andrew Delaney McFadden, an eccentric old man who is bracing himself for the return of the great Chinook that turned his community upside-down 50 years earlier. In a rather labored exposition, the man tells the wide-eyed children what a Chinook is and recounts the havoc the great gale wreaked on the town. Root's (The Araboolies of Liberty Street; The Singing Fir Tree) peppy watercolors--an agreeable stylistic departure for this talented artist--provide a polished chromatic shift between winter's blue and white landscape and the golds of the Chinook-parched earth. Such whimsically surreal images as a horse-drawn sleigh "sailing" gaily through a flooded village add needed sparkle. Ages 5-up. From School Library Journal: Grade 1-3-- A nostalgic reminiscence with a tall-tale flavor. Tunnell's quirky story begins with two young children, newly moved to a rural area in the West, but quickly switches to a series of exaggerated recollections recounted by a friendly local. The brief vignettes offered by "Mr. Andy" describe the effects of "granddaddy chinooks": winds so hot that they can melt snow and confuse the seasons. Root's illustrations are vigorous and amusing, with a primitive feel that suits the colloquial flavor of the text perfectly.
