With its lively, creative approach, this is a unique one-stop guide to the basics of weather. Meet Hurricane, a violent blusterer; Atmosphere, a many-layered character who keeps the planet cosy; hard-nut Hail and sneezy Sleet; Drought, the dusty fellow who makes life hard for animals, plants and people; and mischievous El Niño, who messes around with ocean currents to chaotic effect. Plus tonnes of detail on what makes weather work.
