Sometimes being small can have its advantages. If you're a little cloud like Cloudette, people call you cute nicknames, and you can always find a good spot to watch the fireworks. But what about when you want to do something big, like help a giant garden grow, or make a brook babble?
This charming book gets at the heart of what it means to make a difference no matter your size. Young children will find much to relate to in Cloudette as they follow her on her pursuit for greatness.

Train, turns in a quieter story about a small cloud and her search for a place to fit in (if the scenario recalls 2007's The Police Cloud, rest assured Cloudette stands on her own).

This book will grow well with the reader as their vocabulary grows and they begin to grasp more of the puns that are slipped in among Cloudette’s interaction with the other characters.

Everyone has nicknames for her, she can even sneak into tight spaces that other clouds can’t, and she’s great at hide and seek (of course.) But one day as the other clouds race off to cause big important rainstorms, Cloudette begins to question her size.
