Grade 4 Up-- Anyone needing a clear exposition of lightning, how it is produced, the different types, and its dangers will find it explained here in cogent detail. Diagrams supplement the well-written narrative in describing scientific concepts. Exceptionally fine, full-color photographs--each a work of art--perfectly illustrate the text, powerfully and spectacularly showing the majesty and might of this phenomenon. Written material and pictures can stand independently, but together they create a masterpiece. Storms (Morrow, 1989) by Simon covers a broader topic and does not treat lightning in as much detail. --Meryl Silverstein, American Museum of Natural History, New York City
