Picture-book veteran Yaccarino tries his hand at a longer form, with less-than-happy results. When a wish that a wild storm would take away his self-absorbed parents actually comes true, science-geek Roger and his ill-tempered, mall-rat big sister Sally set out to find them. Their search leads to brief encounters with the artificially folksy Sun as well as ethereal Rain and sealskin-clad Snow. They also get lessons in manners from Lord and Lady Fog, battle a monster made from household chemicals, and finally take on the unruly Wind brothers, who have forced their parents into servitude. From the author of the Animorphs series comes this earnest novel in verse about an orphaned Sudanese war refugee with a passion for cows, who has resettled in Minnesota with relatives. When the owner plans to sell the cow, Kek becomes despondent.
