Description: "This [book] deals with a subject that is important to everyone, for in many ways weather rules the life of man. And like the others in the How and Why Wonder Book series, this one answers the dozens of basic questions about an area of knowledge in which scientists are constantly exploring. So this book is of interest to science-minded children and their parents. It explains how air, sun and water intermingle in a thousand different ways to produce an ever-changing yet predictable weather pattern."

Like all the other books in this excellent series, there is an abundance of nostalgic illustrations in, both, colour and b&w.

Glazed pictorial card covers are in excellent condition for their age. The original owner's name and address have been neatly inscribed in blue ink on the title-page, whilst the reader who took later ownership of the book has certified that the original owner is a twit!
All pages have a light vintage tan, and there are a few specks of foxing on a handful of pages. Otherwise the pages are crisp, unmarked, and very tightly bound.

The copyright date is given as 1960; however, as the last two titles listed on the rear cover weren't published until 1963, then this is likely to be the year of publication.

Measures 27 cm × 20 cm (10.8″ × 8″). 4to. 48 pp.
