When a doghouse landed in the backyard during a tornado, the family wasn't really surprised. What did surprise them was that there was a dog inside, whom they named Tornado. Each chapter of this gently humorous book by award-winning author Betsy Byars tells a different adventure, and together they chronicle how this unique dog becomes a special part of the family.

    It was ok. It was very sad in some parts. I liked the chapter about 5:30. It was funny. I would recommend reading the book but I would get a box of tissues!

          This book is amazing! Since I live just outside of tornado alley i think this could be a true story.
