Synopsis

Cloudette by Tom Lichtenheld

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.

Reviews

Her [Cloudette] tale raises questions relevant to little children: Is there anything good about being small? Will I ever be as good as the big kids? What do clouds do anyway? They'll like the answers. The New York Times Book Review

Cloudette gives a sky-high and playful perspective on our atmosphere and giving the world all that we have. UrbanBaby.com

Little people who feel small and want to do important things will be inspired by Cloudette and will cheer when she finds her own pond-making mission. BookPage

Lichtenheld's depictions of Cloudette puffing herself up for a fulsome downpour will delight children, and funny turns of phrase ( Even the higher-ups were impressed ) will engage adults, too. Kirkus Reviews

Reminiscent of the determination and courage of The Little Engine That Could, this title delivers its message with charm. School Library Journal

The creator of Bridget's Beret (2010) offers here another appealing story featuring a plucky heroine. Applying a full-color palette to his watercolor, ink, and colored-pencil cartoons, Lichtenheld makes use of varying page space and panel techniques to add subtle details to his narrative. Booklist

That Cloudette is neither bullied nor intimidated is an important point
