Narrator Tavia Gilbert animates three unusual friends in a performance that is integrated seamlessly with accompanying music and sound effects. It isn't every day that a bear, a bird, and a snail share a friendship, and it isn't every day that a thunderstorm causes such uproar. Gilbert crafts a voice for each animal that is echoed in the signature music for each creature--a gentle boom for Boom, a high-pitched trill for Twitty, and an ever-changing melody for Snot. Gilbert narrates at a leisurely pace and provides long pauses for listeners to set each scene in their minds. While the storm itself can be appreciated from the audiobook, young listeners who have the accompanying print version in hand will find additional story details in the illustrations.
