Publisher's Summary

Ka-boom! Awakened by an attack from an invisible enemy, Hank the Cowdog knows that there's only one thing for him to do - get inside the house and make sure that his family is safe. But when he arrives, Hank learns that the house is in the path of a swirling killer tornado! Even worse, the family has rushed into the storm cellar - leaving Hank and Drover trapped inside the house. Will they be able to get out before it's too late?

Drover makes his singing debut with "Never Ever Bark at a Funnel-Shaped Cloud".

Hot dog: Don't miss out on any of Hank the Cowdog's adventures.

Love Hank the Cowdog!!

For young and old alike (as well as those somewhere in the middle), if you love humor, you're going to love this entire series. I began reading the books with my daughter years ago, and now that she's grown we both love listening to the audible series. As former owners of our own beloved cowdog (RIP Molly) the lead character Hank has stolen our hearts, given us endless laughs, and hours of fun. Hank, along with his assorted accompaniment of animal friends, will captivate audiences for years to come!

The Case of the Swirling Killer Tornado

This book is FUNNY! Sometimes you find the best treasures in books for kids. It lasted just long enough for me to do my wash in the apartment laundromat.

This is truly funny!

John Erickson has a terrific wit. His first Hank stories were for adults - but the kids loved his superb stories. He is a master storyteller, of the caliber of Twain and Uncle Remus. You must start hearing these stories.

This book is awesome

"This book is awesome because it's funny. They think the tornado is a hurricane! My favorite part was when they got sucked into the tornado. They are always confused about things. The narrator is good at doing the voices." - Theo, age 6.5
