Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud
Publisher: Flying Eye Books
When the scorching hot sun scares the rainclouds away, it leaves one lonely little cloud behind. The raincloud is sad as he has no friends. He joins dogs in the park, hovers over busy shoppers in the town and visits a wedding party, emerging from a church. Nobody wants to play with him. Then he spots a girl who looks miserable, like him - so he follows her.
The girl is grumpy in the market, grumpy on the metro, grumpy at home and still grumpy at her florist shop. The raincloud feels sorry for her, so he waters her plants - and the next morning, they all burst into bloom!
A thoroughly heartwarming book, with picture-perfect illustrations, about loneliness and finding friendship in the most unexpected places.
