This reviewer has a very high regard for the work of Pat Hutchins. Her word play and smart, snappy prose keep children of all ages entertained for hours. "The Wind Blew" is part of her "Metre-ology" (literally "Weather Poetry") series, and is one of the strongest candidates to win the John Kettley Prize later this year. If you're new to Pat (as her fans, or "patters" call her) then I'd suggest you try "The Rain Read" first. Her first book, "The Snow Yello" was pulled from the shelves when the Swiss electro-pop noise-mongers after which the book was named banned Hutchins from using their famous moniker and threatened legal action. Copies of this rare book can fetch up to 60 pence on ebay.

"The Wind Blew" charms and disarms in equal measures, and younger children will be delighted and excited by the colourful illustrations. A lovely addition to your bookshelf.

Another wonderful Pat Hutchins book! I have been reading Pat's books to children and giving them as gifts for over twenty five years. They are always a hit. This book gives children action to anticipate, funny characters to laugh with and good visuals to "explain" the concepts of wind and air movement.

An amusing story told in rhyming verse about all the havoc the unseen wind can cause. The colorful and delightful characters chasing all their items that the wind has stolen from them are typical of the illustrations in Pat Hutchins body of work. Her work should be in every child's library!

As soon as my grand children saw this book, they were happy. Both had it read to them at school. I bought it because I am a fan of Pat Hutchins books and they loved others of her's when we got them at the library. This is a fun book with wonderful illustrations and not many words. The pictures tell the tale so well! Once again we were not disappointed...definitely a keeper...they will be able to read this on their own very soon. This shows how the wind blows various items away from folks who chase after them and finally get them back....very cute! Being able to purchase this book in paperback makes it affordable and a nice gift.

We checked this book out from a local library over a year ago, and it's one my daughter (age 3) has asked for repeatedly - yet the library couldn't locate it again. She told everyone the wind blew the wind book away. Well, it finally "landed" on our doorstep and she continued to look for all of the other items that the wind takes in the book - as if they could be in our yard. We think the illustrations are funny becuase it's amazing that all of the people in the book who wear hats have really flat heads - so the hats don't stay on! This picture book puts a fun spin on the wind and turns a windy day into an adventure.
