Plans for a forest cleanup are interrupted when a mole who has visited Badger and Fox before returns to warn them of the imminent approach of a mighty storm. When she demonstrates her ability to decipher the vibrations things make, Badger, Fox, Squirrel, and Rabbit realize they need to take her warning seriously and share it with the rest of the forest community. But even knowing what’s coming can’t prepare Badger and Fox for the full fury of the storm.
“Then the wind picked up, and by late afternoon storm gusts were ripping fistfuls of leaves from the trees. Back in their den, Badger and Fox listened to the rain driving and the wind wailing and kept going back to the window to see the great waves of water washing across it.”
