Synopsis

The Showbiz Clouds by Clare Nasir

Les and Levi, The Showbiz Clouds, use their incredible singing skills to calm even the worst weather, and thereby stop blizzards, torrential rain and fog causing disaster on the land below. However, these two musical clouds become so popular that things turn to chaos one summer day during a festival in the sky. They plan their escape - north in search of Santa and his elves who are struggling to reach their present quota for Christmas - can the Showbiz Clouds save the day? Clare's stories are fun, colourful and ignite kid's passion for natural science. Following the success of Colin the Cloud and Steve the Stratus, The Showbiz Clouds, book 3 in the Cloud Academy Series, focuses on the seasons, extreme weather and has a great set of back pages about how snow is formed. The Cloud Academy Series is a set of rhyming stories for 4 to 7 year olds. As well as being packed full of adventures of clouds across the sky, they have key learning points about weather and simple, yet clever atmospheric physics. Clare's meteorological expertise, journalistic experience, coupled with being a mum of a five year old; bring the elements of storytelling and solid science together.
