Cyril the Lonely Cloud

Written by Tim Hopgood

Cyril the Lonely Cloud Synopsis

It is sad but true that no one is ever pleased to see Cyril the cloud. He's always being blamed for ruining everyone's fun: casting shadows over everywhere he goes, and making things look dull and miserable. So, one day, Cyril drifts far, far away in search of a friendly face: over farmland, towns, and an ocean . . . Eventually he arrives in a new land whose ground is baking hot. Here everyone welcomes the shade Cyril gives. This makes Cyril so happy that he cries big glorious tears of joy. And his tears soak the land and everything seems to smile. And that is all Cyril ever wanted - to look down on the world and see a happy smile. A beautiful story that taps right into what Tim Hopgood's books are all about: celebrating the natural world and promoting a positive outlook on life.

Cyril the Lonely Cloud Press Reviews

The perfect gift to share with all the family. * Lancashire Evening Post * Praise for Singing in the Rain: Tim Hopgoods exuberant illustrations make rain a joyful experience. * Red Reading Hub * A seasonal classic in every sense. * The Daily Mail * Hopgood's crayon and pastel illustrations capture the sheer wonder of winter. * Kirkus * Lovely, tuneful, wintry choice. * The Guardian * Praise for Walking in a Winter Wonderland: The words to this famous song are given new life in this beautiful book. * Book Trust * Every page is so lovely, so appealing, it demands long, close attention. * Armadillo Magazine * The words are enriched by gorgeous illustrations. * Carousel * Reading the words in print, rather than simply hearing them, made me think much more about what the song says to us about the wonders of our world and the importance of love. * Parents in Touch * Praise for What a Wonderful World: Hopgood does the impossible and makes a song as ubiquitous as What a Wonderful World feel fresh again. With dazzling artwork that jumps off the page, the colours of the rainbow never looked prettier. * Huffington Post *
