Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7. Dramatic full-color photos of lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes are a vivid testimony to the dedicated efforts of Warren Faidley, storm chaser and photographer. Kramer's readable, exciting text allows readers to ride with Faidley in his specially equipped vehicle, Shadow Chaser, as he races to intercept likely tornado or lightning producers and to join him in the chaotic maelstrom of Hurricane Andrew. Interspersed with Faidley's adventures is a concrete body of information on lightning, storm development, tornado behavior, and the art of photographing fleeting phenomena. There is no index, but the organization of the material and a clear table of contents make specific information readily available. This eye-catching book will undoubtedly be utilized by nonfiction lovers hungry for a good read.?Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-6. Severe weather photographer Warren Faidley, who chronicled his own experiences in his 1996 adult book Storm Chaser, is the subject here. He also supplied the full-color photographs--spectacular pictures of lightning, tornadoes, and hurricane winds ripping the landscape and candid shots of himself on the road in his specially outfitted car. Kramer's text is just as noteworthy. With entries from Faidley's diary and personal comments, it reveals the drama and danger inherent in Faidley's unusual profession. And because Faidley's gutsy face-offs against nature may give kids the wrong impression, Kramer is careful to include plenty about the photographer's preparations for storm chasing and about what to do during a weather emergency.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a beautiful summery of Faidley's "Storm Chaser" for kids. The photos are simply breadth-taking and incredible. Most kids would be more interested in storm chasing than storms itself, but Faidley will use his wonderful photos to arouse their curiosity about the science behind our violent atmosphere. If the words can't leave them gasping awe, the photographs will.

A Kid's Review on September 28, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Tao, age 7:

I like that when he talks about his experiences he makes it seem exciting. And I like the seven storm night part, that he tried to take a picture but he didn't, but I still like it.

His mom:

I really like this book. It has vivid descriptions of the life of Warren Faidley, a storm photographer. It talks about how he photographs lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes. It includes many details of his daily life, such as visits to weather centers, navigating unmarked farm roads to chase tornadoes, and even the many oil changes needed for his specially outfitted vehicle, "Shadow Chaser." Along the way, we learn about the science of storms as well. My only criticism is that some of the descriptions of events are a bit confusing, and it would be nice if the photos had captions. Overall a very exciting book combining science, adventure, and biography.

Thought there would be more weather pictures. Also, the pictures that were in the book seemed a bit washed out.
