Twister : Although she sees them safely to the cellar, Mama has to leave Lucille and Natt and go help Mr. Lyle, an elderly neighbor. "Don't open this door, " she tells them, "until I come back with Mr. Lyle." But Mama doesn't come back, and Lucille must comfort Natt throughout the terrifying - if familiar - experience. From the opening scene, in which the children are enjoying their porch swing on a bright spring day, to the closing scene, in which Mama and Mr. Lyle are snugly seated with them on the now-broken swing amid devastation, Darleen Bailey Beard is saying in reassuring text and Nancy Carpenter in warm, impressionistic pictures that twisters are natural - and not always disasters.
