Wendy Peters is wild about weather! She loves experimenting with it, learning about it, and teaching others about all kinds of weather patterns. Wendy’s family has just moved to Circleville, Texas, and she’s excited to learn that her new teacher and classmates Jessica and Dennis are as weather mad as she is!

Can Wendy’s Weather plan keep everyone safe when a tornado hits?
Book 2: Look Out for Lightning!
After the tornado in Circleville, Wendy and her friends Jessica and Dennis formed a club and named it “Wendy’s Weather Warriors.” Their first order of business is to inform their classmates and Principal Stuard about the dangers of lightning. But, the whole school is distracted by the soccer championship between the Circleville Cougars and the Diamond Ducks. The day of the big match finally arrives and Wendy is the only one paying attention to the cumulonimbus clouds warning of a storm! Can Wendy’s Weather Warriors get Mrs. Stuard to postpone the game before it’s too late?
Book 3: Sno-vember
Just before Thanksgiving, Mr. Andrews announces there will be a snowman-building contest on the first snow day of the year. Wendy, Jessica, Dennis, and their class wonder when snow will come. They decide to record the temperature and cloud formations to track when the best chance of a snow day will be. When the snow comes, it isn’t enough to make snowmen, but the Weather Warriors have a better idea—one that will also help out the local homeless shelter. Can the Weather Warriors convince the entire school to go along with their plan?
Book 4: Hail to the King
It’s time for the Circleville Elementary Spring Carnival! The teachers have nominated five male teachers for king and five female teachers for queen and now the kids get to vote for the winner.

But a sudden hailstorm ruins the carnival and their plan! Can Wendy, Jessica, Dennis, and Austin save the carnival?
Book 5: Attack of the Giant Flood

But the Weather Warriors have more important things to think about—like the unveiling of the new middle school they will attend next year!

Can Wendy’s Weather Warriors save another driver that wasn’t as lucky?
