Scholastic book for ages 9-12, 122 pages. From the back cover:
No one who has even seen a hurricane in action will ignore a hurricane warning! Hurricanes have buried towns, uprooted trees, lifted cattle high into the air, made whole islands disappear, and killed hundreds of people.
Where do these storms come from? How do they travel? What is the "eye" of a hurricane? Why do they "grow" on water and die on land? What does a hurricane hunter do? Why is a tornado like a giant vacuum cleaner?
What do you want to know about hurricanes and twisters? Here are the answers!

Very educational I am sure but too difficult for my grade level. Definitely for older students that may be interested in hurricanes and tornados.
