PreSchool-Grade 2-A short and slight allegory. A lonely cloud boy lives high up in the sky by himself. One day, a butterfly passes by and gives him a great idea. He fashions a butterfly from a fluffy cloud nearby and sends it off for others to see. Looking down at the earth, Cloud Boy sees even more wonderful things and begins to create things both large and small from the clouds around him-boats, rabbits, birds, fish, cats, flowers, and snowmen. He then realizes that he will never be lonely again as the children below enjoy his artistic creations. One or two phrases of text accompany each page. The story suggests that the artist, working alone, connects to other people through his art, bringing joy to his life and theirs. Montijo uses charcoal in the highlights and shadows, along with white, gray, and blue paint and ink to illustrate his tale. An acceptable but supplemental purchase.-Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA

Great story but please do yourself a favor and find the original hardcover.
Seriously, it may seem like a simple story but it speaks volumes - capable of taking someone of any age back to the simple days of childhood when cloud watching was a phenomenon!
I highly recommend it as a gift for your little ones but I also found it to be something that can be passed down through the years.
