Annie Ant lives with her mum, dad and 382 brothers and sisters. Annie is the middle child... born number 191 in the family... and has some very stormy questions... Annie didn't understand what storms were and why they made such a big noise. Where did they come from and where did they go? And is there a place where storms go to hide? Determined to lift this dark cloud of confusion, Annie decides today is the day to find the answers and learn who holds the key to the storm that has been scaring her for so long. With the help of some crickets, beetles and monkeys, Annie slowly pieces together the answer to her big questions. This book will help children overcome the fear of storms. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.
