The Cloud Spinner

A wise and prudent boy cannot convince a king that “Enough is enough and not one stitch more” is philosophy for life. Magic, clouds and a princess who saves the rain make a lovely story to discuss consumption and ecological implications. Michael Catchpool‘s book goes beyond Earth Day by offering a lasting story.

Alison Jay‘s crackle varnish illustrations show Earth’s fragility and lend an antiqued quality to this modern concept fairy tale.

Teach kids about clouds or enjoy the beauty of the sky by drawing it.
