Cloud Boy
Rhode Montijo
Picture Book
Ages 3 to 6
Simon and Schuster, 2006, 1-4169-0199-X
 Have you ever wondered why some clouds look like castles, or dogs, boats or birds? Well, now you are going to find that the wonderful cloud pictures that you see floating across the sky are the creation of a little cloud boy. There was a time when this cloud boy was terribly lonely. Then one day a butterfly flew past the cloud he was sitting on and the little cloud boy got an idea – he began to make floating cloud sculptures of the things that he saw on the ground below him. Now the little cloud boy had something to do that was creative, beautiful, and he made things that people all over the world could enjoy.
  In this simply written and sweetly illustrated little book small children will meet a charming character whom they will have no difficulty identifying with. Soft charcoal drawings sat against a sky blue background are distinctive and perfectly suited to the story that they illustrate.
