The Storm in the Barn by Matt Phelan (Candlewick Press, 2009)
Also reviewed at:
Books Like Bread: "While mostly wordless, this graphic novel does an amazing job conveying the barren, windy world that the Dust Bowlers were surviving in."
A Library School Journey: "The use of color throughout the book is amazing. The greys and browns of the dust is the predominant feature, with colorful pastel memories of better times, the dark indigo of the brooding storm, and the vivid blood red of the rabbit drive."
Reading Rants: "This is a great graphic read for all ages, with something for everyone within Phelan’s soft edged, sweeping panels."
