From Kate Greenaway Award-winning illustrator Grahame Baker-Smith, Wild is the Wind follows the extraordinary path of the wind around the globe. Cassi watches a little swift dive and swoop in the still air. Then a small breeze stirs the leaves in the trees, and as the wind grows bolder, a whiff of danger sends small creatures running for cover.

Across the ocean, the wind awakes with a fury, whipping the waves, cresting each one with wild, white horses. This extraordinary sequel to the award-winning The Rhythm of the Rain takes readers on a journey along the path of the world’s wind, through hurricanes, tornadoes, and gentle ocean breezes. All of this is witnessed by a tiny swift who relies on the winds to circumnavigate the globe.
