Patricia is a young girl that is at her babushkas farm in Michigan. A storm comes and Patricia is super scared. Her babushka promised that they will make thunder cake. Will Patricia be scared anymore?

I was surprised because Patricia got out from under the bed and Patricia got the ingredients for the cake. I think she was really brave. I like how Patricia drew the pictures because they’re very colorful. I also like the writing in the book.

I recommend this book to people that like to read true stories about other people. The kind of audience I recommend this book to is 8-10 year olds. I think what might interest readers is when she got out from under the bed and she felt brave. I recommend this book to people that are adventurous. Why? Patricia is very adventurous and nice to other people.
