Publisher Summary
As they wait out a tornado in their storm cellar, a family listens to their farmhand tell stories about the dog that was blown into his life by another tornado when he was a boy

From Newbery Medal-winning author Betsy Byars comes a sweet, entertaining story that will touch the heart of dog lovers at any age.

A tornado appears in the distance, and Pete, the farmhand, gathers everyone into the storm cellar. While they wait for the storm to pass, he tells the family about a tornado that struck when he was a boy—a twister that blew in a doghouse, complete with a dog inside!

Pete tells everyone how he soon learned that this dog, whom he named Tornado, was no ordinary dog—he played card tricks, once saved a turtle′s life, and had a life-long rivalry with the family cat. By the time Pete tells all of Tornado′s remarkabe stories, the storm has passed, and Tornado's antics have entertained another family of farmers.
