There are a lot of books on ferocious weather, but these two (Inside Hurricanes and Inside Tornadoes) are definitely a step above! The books are designed with foldout pages, full color, sharp illustrations and stunning photos, and the best explanations of the Saffir-Simpson scale and the Fujita scale I've seen recently. There are weather and climate facts, colorful maps, storm stories, scientific developments, and eyewitness accounts that really grab readers' attention. There are also sections on how to survive the storms, and how to plan for weather emergencies. The writing is clear and detailed, and these are going to be a fantastic resource for research, as well as a lot of fun to browse!
