Reviewed by H.G. (age 8)

This is a story about a girl who is scared of thunder. Her grandmother helped her overcome her fear. Her grandmother has her do hard things like get ingredients for a cake. If you're afraid of something, don't sit there. Try and overcome your fear.

I liked this story because of the illustrations and because of the backgrounds. They are very realistic. I learned that if you're afraid of something, try not to be. I liked the characters and how they helped each other.

I think people should read this book because it can help you overcome your fears.
