Sejal Sinha Battles Superstorms (Paperback)
Sejal Sinha is so excited to be celebrating Diwali with her family, but when a hurricane threatens to cancel the festivities, Sejal, her cousin Mira, her little brother Ravi, and her sidekick Professor Cheetah embark on an adventure that will teach them about the science behind superstorms, the history of how scientists have tried to stop them, and the power of imagination. With a mix of science, history, culture, and a whole lot of magic, Sejal Sinha Battles Superstorms has a little bit for everyone. Most importantly, however, it shows that imagination makes anything possible, and that we are never too old to believe in magic.

Sejal Sinha is looking forward to celebrating Diwali with her family. But when a hurricane appears, Sejal and her cousin Mira learn that the house is in danger from the imminent storm. With the help of Sejal’s favorite stuffed animal, Professor Cheetah, the two girls use Cardboard Box Magic to build their own Hurricane Hunter and fly into the eye of the hurricane!
They learn about a project from the 1960s called Project Stormfury, where a team actually tried to stop hurricanes. Can Sejal and Mira do what the previous Stormfury team couldn’t and battle the superstorm?
