Editorial Reviews

From the Author


Clouds are uniquely wonderful works of natural beauty, so I hope you will learn to identify some of the rare and not so rare clouds using the information from the stories in my book. 
If you enjoy watching clouds as much as I do, you might want to join the Cloud Appreciation Society. cloudappreciationsociety.org/

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs to Be Formatted for Kindle Device Screens August 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Obviously the author has put a fair bit effort into drawing the illustrations and coming up with a way to explain the different types of clouds in the sky. Unfortunately they haven't put any effort at all into formatting this properly. The way it is, it has the images and text on top of the image. Problem is, that image on each page takes up about 10% of the available screen, even if you take the time to use the zoom in feature on your Kindle Fire for each page (which is ridiculous to have to do), the low pixilation makes the text in the image difficult to read and blurry. A shame, as it could well be a good resource tool or introduction for a child to want to learn more about clouds. I don't understand why authors put so much effort into their writing and illustrations then just can't be bothered to spend a small amount of time formatting their book before publishing them as a Kindle book. It really makes no sense.

The book also mentions a rare lenticular could in a page of links at the end saying it wasn't included in the book but is often mistaken for a UFO. Surely this would be the most interesting of all clouds to see in an illustration, you've got to wonder why it wasn't included.
