When Flora and her pesky little brother, Crispin, are whisked away by a swirling and swooping wind, she gets the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to give her brother away. A dragonfly, the man in the moon, and even the wind itself make her incredible offers if she'll just leave her little brother with them. Flora would do anything to get rid of Crispin... wouldn't she?
It turns out that the change of season is also bringing about a change in Flora's heart — and she's not so sure she wants to get rid of Crispin after all! This autumnal and fanciful story will ring true to older siblings who know that, while little brothers and sisters may be annoying, there's no one you'd rather have with you on an amazing windy adventure.
"Birdsall's first picture book is a flight of fancy reconciling a sister to her innocently irritating little brother. Phelan uses ink, watercolor, and pastels for their airy adventure, tossing and tumbling them through a series of encounters that reveal Flora's changing feelings. This gem of a book will resonate with older siblings everywhere." — Mary Jean Smith, School Library Journal
