Perfect for Future Detectives!
TORNADO HITS is written by real-life reporter Hilde and each story in the Hilde Cracks the Case Series are inspired by reports she's actually done. When a tornado barrels through Hilde's town, she's on the case with the help of her sister. They're trying to solve the mysterious case of why fish were flopping in the middle of Orange Street.
The first thing they do is get all of the fish to safety! Then, they search for the reason live fish were in the middle of the road. It's a strange occurrence indeed and they must follow the clues to solve it. Hilde and her sister interview people in the path of the tornado and those who own a restaurant and might've lost a delivery of fish. But the answer lies in science.
I love how the illustrations fill each page and that some look like notebook paper with case notes. Hilde is an inspiration to those children who want to be journalists as well. Hilde uses her mind to make the right choices in each situation and love how she shows the path to problem-solve.
Final Verdict: TORNADO HITS is perfect for fans of mysteries, weather, and journalism. Hilde just may be the new Nancy Drew!
