  • Overview

    Jack and the Hurricane follows young, willful Jack on his adventure to save his cousin's birthday party, no matter what Mother Nature has in store. Despite the appeals of neighbours, firefighters and even the army, Jack sets out into a world that is falling down around him, yet his determination and imagination keep him moving forward. The hurricane increases in strength and damage as Jack journeys to brighten the day for his family members.  It’s a story about determination, risk and caring, all wrapped up in wind, rain, flooding and power outages. 

    An engaging read for children of all ages, Jack and the Hurricane is a story of family, friends and purpose that will tickle your funny bone and delight your heart.
