Since 1986 he has been the spokesman for the motel chain Motel 6, ending commercials with the phrase, "I'm Tom Bodett for Motel 6, and we'll leave the light on for yo.

I have often enjoyed Tom Bodett on NPR, and although there are many of the qualities in this book that are sparkling examples . Another great Tom Bodett book. Tom narrates as well as he writes, very good.

I have often enjoyed Tom Bodett on NPR, and although there are many of the qualities in this book that are sparkling examples of Mr. Bodett's gift, like his connection with how young people think and act, I do not think that this book maintains the level of genius that Mr Bodett can attain. Oh it's a great read, and you will be enriched with the reading, his feel for the island life of Alaska, but if you are expecting the warm, homey love and wise observation you have come to expect of his writing, you will feel a tinge of disappointment.

While this is certainly not the best of Tom Bodett's books, it was an enjoyable listen as an audiobook. The characters were likable and the relationship between the kids and their father felt authentic. Tom Bodett's voice is simply great for audiobooks.

From humorist, storyteller, author, and the voice of Motel 6 commercials, here is an exciting middle-grade adventure novel set in rural Alaska. Bodett, the genial voice in those Motel 6 commercials, offers a page-turner set in the wilds of Alaska, and he clearly knows the taste of sea and storm, the face of the landscape, and the sound of the loons and the scent of salmon. In this sentimental but rousing tale, September Crane, 13, and her 12-year-old brother, Ivan, are often left to themselves while their father fishes for their living.

Do you know what a "williwaw" is? Thirteen-year-old September Crane, and her twelve-year-old brother, Ivan, live at Steamer Cove on Bag Bay in Alaska. Their mother died one night some seven years ago in a williwaw, the dreaded violent windstorm that sweeps across the bay especially in the fall of the year. Their father is a commercial fisherman who has to be away from home, so the two teens, who are homeschooled, are often left to themselves for periods of time. If something ever happens while their father is gone, they may have to start spending their time alone on the farm with Aunt Nelda and Uncle Spitz rather than at home. And their neighbor across the cove, Mr. Berger, is often threatening to call the authorities on them.

Ivan loves to play video games, but the only electricity in the cabin is from a generator which keeps their two radios powered. He has figured a way to tap into the radio batteries to recharge his video game device. However, one night when their father is off with a fishing crew and has told Ivan not to mess with the radios, the boy connects his device to the radio batteries and unintentionally fries both his device and the radios. Over a period of several days, the two have to make a number of forbidden trips by themselves in their skiff to and from the town in order to have the radios repaired. On the final day, they need to be back at the cabin with the radios for their father's next call. But a friend is having a party in town, and they end up staying longer than intended. A series of bad choices leads to their being caught on the bay in a williwaw. Will they make it home in time? Will they even survive?

Author Tom Bodett, a storyteller, National Public Radio commentator, and author, is best known as the spokesman for Motel 6. "We'll leave the porch light on for you." In Williwaw!, he weaves a rousing tale that also includes a lot of information about Alaskan weather, boat safety, northern wildlife, respect for the sea, and the need for obeying parents. A few common euphemistic terms, such as darned, jeez, golly, heck, and gosh, are found, but otherwise I noted a lack of objectionable items so common in much of modern youth literature. It is just a good, enjoyable read. The story moves along slowly for a while, but all the foreshadowing builds up to a really exciting climax, and there is that important, timeless message that even teenagers need to develop moral character and not try to deceive others. Bodett has also written The Free Fall of Webster Cummings and Norman Tuttle on the Last Frontier.

Read it anyway is my recommendation.
