# Night of the Twisters

## Some of the other characters

Some of the other characters: Dan's Aunt Goldie, ALL of Arthur's sisters, Dan's mom, Dan's dad, Arthur's mom and dad, Mrs. Smiley, and all the backround people.

## Setting

Time- The time was CONSTENTLY changing. First it was morning, then the transition from morning to noon, then noon, then the transition from noon to dusk, then dusk, then the transition from dusk no night, then night. and then we start over.

Weather- The weather changed a lot in this story, so lets start from beginning to end. At the beginning of the book it was very sunny and warm. If you recall, in my summary it said that they were at the beach in the beginning of the book. in the transition from morning to noon, it seemed as if it was getting colder and windier, and the sky was turning colors. (like green, perhaps), and at noon it was really windy and it was colder than earlier... In the transition from noon to dusk, it was around there the twister hit. After the twister the weather was sort of nice, but still a little windy and cold, since 7 tornado's hit little Grand Island, some were still going on.

Location- This story took place in a bunch of different places but the main one was outside, in the neighborhood. I will explain all the locations in the story, but I'm just telling you that was the main one. In the beginning of the story it was at a beach. In the transition from morning to noon, they were heading back to Dan's house. At noon, they reached Dan's house. It's not like they took a long time, they just left really late. In the transition from noon to dusk, they were at the house. That is where they stayed for pretty much the rest of the book. The only other location that they went to was Dan's grandpa's farm down in Phillips.

## Problem/Solution

Let's start with the first problem in the book. Dan's house was getting torn up by the tornado. The way they fixed it by deciding they would rebuild everything so they could try to make it like it was before. The next problem was everyone split up and no one could find anyone else. The way they solved THAT was tracking everyone down later in the book. Those were some of the main problems in the book. One of the other problems is that they couldn't get Mrs. Smiley out of her house. They way they solved that was stacking couches and furniture on tope of one another to try to get Mrs. Smiley out of her house after the tornado hit her house, 'cause she was trapped in her basement too. Just like Dan, Arthur and Ryan. One of the other MAIN problems is that Dan, Arthur and Ryan were trapped in the basement. The way they got out of that pickle was that Stacey had to come rescue them from the basement.
