WHAT’S THAT NOISE???? Is it, is it, is it alien monsters? Or is it a monstrous, swirling, killer tornado? Whatever it is, a cool, calm, collected retreat is in order for the… Drover, RUN!!!!

Thankfully, Hank and Drover have a confederate in the main house – Little Alfred. Little Alfred will give them a break. Little Alfred will give them protection from this awful, mind-blowing storm. And Little Alfred does – but the big, nasty tornado refuses to give up. It chases them. IT’S AWFUL!

I love Hank the Cowdog, and this is one of my favorites! It's been a few years since I listened to it with my son (we listened to it over and over again), and hearing it again just made me laugh as hard as ever. Hank and Drover are at their best in this tale full of charlie monsters, raw bacon, funnel clouds, and singing buzzards. If you only listen to one Hank, let it be this one!

I read pretty much this entire series years ago after I descovered them in my elementary school libary. The plot, and characters are great. Plus these books are extremly funny. I loved this series then and I still love it.

This one I have read more than once to my students it is so fun to share especially the part about the buzzards right after the tornado hits and the dogs are in the tree.
