Professor Fergus Fahrenheit and His Wonderful Weather Machine

Illustrated by Don Weller

About The Book

In this “sweet and east” picture book based on nineteenth- and twentieth- century rainmakers, Professor Fahrenheit demonstrates his magical weather machine to the people of Dry Gulch, Texas, to help end their drought (Kirkus Reviews).

Facing their driest season yet, the townsfolk of drought-ridden Dry Gulch, Texas, begin to worry that they may never see a drop of rain again. So when eccentric Professor Fahrenheit rolls into town and reassures the citizens of Dry Gulch that he can end their drought, he is met with intense doubt and skepticism.

Determined to save the day, Professor Fahrenheit puts his magical and wonderful weather machine to the test as he demonstrates his strange contraption and attempts to bring the dehydrated town a healthy batch of rainstorms.
