Waiting on Wednesday #5 It's Raining Frogs and Fishes
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week is It's Raining Frogs and Fishes: Four Seasons of Natural Phenomena and Oddities of the Sky by Jerry Dennis. A new paperback edition is forthcoming (have not seen a release date yet) the link goes to the Kindle edition.
This is a non- fiction look at phenomena of the sky, told with humor and insight and illustrated by Glenn Wolff. Perfect for kids and adults and told in an easy to understand manner. Acclaimed writer Jerry Dennis is an evangelist for the wonders of nature and the beauty of northern Michigan in particular. I'm a big fan of his book The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas, the best book about the Great Lakes I've ever read. Check out his website here.
Here is a trailer for another of his books, The Windward Shore: Winter on the Great Lakes.

Your WOW book sounds great! The author's website is nice also. I like that he has a book about canoeing, with waterproof covers - highly practical!ReplyDelete
