Roger was so mad, he hopped out of his bed and threw open the window. "I wish you'd carry Mom and Dad away, too!" he shouted into the wind.

What Roger didn't know was the four dastardly Wind brothers were just waiting to kidnap his parents. Now it's time for him and his sister, Sally, to quit bickering and embark on a rescue mission.

Their unbelievable adventure takes them through a world so fantastically strange that Roger must unlearn everything he's read in books. And if he and Sally don't figure out how to get along, they'll never get Mom and Dad back ... especially if that purple goo keeps following them.

Award-winning artist and author Dan Yaccarino's first illustrated novel for children is a fun-filled, contemporary fable about the strength of family no matter how great the odds.
