The Book of Clouds

Publisher: The Emma Press

Review

There are many clouds that reference books don’t talk about: you might know what a strato-cumulus is, or a cirrus cloud, but what about a veil cloud, worn at weddings by brides? Or car clouds, splinter clouds that stab your socks, flustered clouds and bluster clouds? And once you’ve discovered all the names for clouds, you probably still haven’t considered what clouds dream about, or how they dance, or how rain sounds like piano chords...

This wonderful book about the magic of clouds is full of surprising and original poems, perfect for upper key stage two children either at school or at home.

The poems are by turns bouncy, funny, quirky and thoughtful, and, being translated from Latvian, have a freshness that will appeal to those looking for something a bit different.
