Synopsis

Steve the Stratus by Clare Nasir

Steve the Stratus cloud is stressed - his job is to drizzle which makes everything grey and dreary. Luckily his friend Lisa has plans for a fabulous new career. But will this be enough to brighten up Steve's day? A funny and colourful story of friends following their dreams. The tale provides a wonderful insight into the workings of weather. Steve the Stratus is a rhyming story for 4 to 7 year olds. As well as being packed full of fun and adventure it has some key learning points about weather and simple atmospheric physics. It is a great talking point for parents and their kids and a perfect platform for a school lesson on weather. Clare's meteorological expertise, journalistic experience, coupled with being a mum of a four-year old, bring the elements of storytelling and solid science together. Steve the Stratus is the second book in the Cloud Academy Series.
