Authors: Judi Barrett
Original Publication Date: 1978
Date I First Read: Summer 1980ish

Basic Summary: The town of Chewandswallow has unusual weather with no need for grocery stores. All of their food needs came in with the weather. That is until things started going awry!
What I Remember About the Book: The bacon and eggs in the tree before the weather took a turn for the worse, and after, the giant pancake (with syrup) on the school.
What I Took Away From the Book: Weather can be really fun!
Rating (1-5 stars): 5
Notes: I have re-read this many times over the years. I even bought a new copy for myself after the old copy from 1980ish from my cousin fell apart. I have used this book for preschool storytimes.
