Title: Stormin Norman the Soggy Doggy
Author:Andy Allen
Publisher:Beavers Pond Press
ISBN:978-1-59298-039-0

A young boy sits down by his dad one sunny day and listens to a tale about a boy named Andy and his dog Norm. Andy and Norm went for a walk after the flood of 2008 in the Hawkeye state. Norm being the happy dog he was couldn't resist exploring near a stream. Norm found a floating stick and nibbled at it. He tugged at it and yanked it. But, to Norms surprise the log is bigger than he thought. Ultimately, Norm is pulled into the water and his adventure begins. Unable to swim, Andy soon jumps in. The high rushing water carries the two down the stream. What will happen to Norm and Andy? Will these adventurers ever make it to dry land? You'll have to read it to find out.

Stormin Norman is a wonderful story for kids. The funny rhyming tale will roll off of a child's tongue and fill his day with joy. Brightly colored illustrations bring to the life the adventure of Norm and Andy. Any pet lover will get a kick out of this very curious pup. What's even better is the story is based off of a true even that took place in Iowa in 2008. Allen shows kids friendship in the face of danger. In the flood many homes were destroyed and lives were changed forever. Parents and teachers can utilize this story to open dialogue about weather, floods and how communities are affected by these drastic changes in climate.
