From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–I'm late! I'm late, but it's not my fault. A young boy enters his classroom, harried and exhausted, because the wind was blowing, creating outrageous-sounding obstacles to his timely arrival at school. He reports a mountain of whisking dandelions that he had to scale, a flag at the post office that flapped so hard its stars fluttered to the sidewalk, and hats from the millinery store sailing out the door. Traffic signs fly, a picket fence is whirled away, chickens and a rooster are blown to the courthouse roof, and the boy is lost in a fog until…the wind whooshes him up into the air and sets him down at the front door of the school. His teacher doesn't believe his story until she hears the wind calling, opens the window, and is lifted out of the classroom. Derby's dazzling language is accompanied by Nguyen's acrylic and charcoal illustrations that carry the action and add to the story's energy. This delightful read-aloud nearly ripples as the wind whooshes and roars, lifting readers into the enchanting tale.–Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA

From Booklist

Who would believe that the wind could cause a little boy to be late for school? Not the boy's teacher, but after the child details all the situations the whooshing wind caused and the damage he had to undo, she comes pretty close to changing her mind. The boy's story is juxtaposed with his teacher's disbelieving responses, which appear in red ink: "Flying traffic signs? You must be kidding me!" "It's true, it really is! Cars stopped while drivers dithered, so I directed traffic until a policeman came. And still the wind kept blowing." The acrylic-and-charcoal illustrations, which reflect Nguyen's work with animated movies such as Ice Age, effectively use perspective to generate the melee. From climbing a mountain of dandelions to coaxing chickens from the courthouse roof with popcorn (which the boy always carries in his lunch bag), the boy's fanciful, whirlwind journey to school will leave children grinning and, perhaps, blowing up their own excuses.
