"Everybody talks about the weather, but can't do anything about it!"
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2015
Beautiful and vivid illustration create the growing excitement of cause and effect to sheer panic of an out of control situation. The Rain Came Down is a wonderful gem of a book where everyone is affected by the drenching rain. Cars stop, horns honk, food is not delivered, leaks ruin cakes, fights start, all because people are obsessing about the weather. Police come and while attempting to unravel the snarled mess, the sun arrives and rescues the mob of malcontents. Peace is restored and we learn that no matter how tumultuous our lives are, how out of control we feel, the sun WILL come out and you will get your life back. I love this book. David Shannon is a genius!
