"Come on, rain!" Tess pleads to the sky as listless vines and parched plants droop in the endless heat. Up and down the block, cats pant while

heat waivers off tar patches in the broiling alleyway. More than anything, Tess hopes for rain. And when it comes, she and her friends are

ready for a surprising joyous celebration.   Through exquisite language and acute observation, Newbery medalist Karen Hesse recreates the

glorious experience of a quenching rainstorm on a sweltering summer day. Jon J Muth's masterful and lyrical watercolours perfectly reflect the

spirit of the text.
