Come On, Rain!

ISBN: 978-0-590-33125-8

by Karen Hesse

"Come on, rain!" Tess pleads to the sky as listless vines and parched plants droop in the endless heat. Up and down the block, cats pant while heat wavers off tar patches in the broiling alleyway. More than anything, Tess hopes for rain. And when it comes, she and her friends are ready for a surprising joyous celebration...Through exquisite language and acute observation, Newton medalist Karen Hesse recreates the glorious experience of a quenching rainstorm on a sweltering summer day.
