David & George, two brothers, are caught in a hurricane. They wake the next morning to find the neighbor's fallen tree in their yard. The children circle the tree and realize it could add to their imagination as they explore the jungle, ride the seven seas, and journey to the stars and beyond. Unfortunately, the tree is cut down for lumber. That evening another storm approaches and the two boys hope the last standing elm tree will land in their yard.

The last picture in the book, with Hannibal the cat looking out the window and seeing fish swimming in the storm, makes me laugh! It leaves much to the imagination.

This story is based upon a childhood memory - a storm and a giant tree - that delighted him and his siblings.
