Cloud Book (The Cloud Book)

the cloud book  by tomie depaola

You see, clouds are fun, silly, and very interesting.

Tomie dePaola—best-selling author of Strega Nona, Quiet, and many others—knows a lot about clouds. He also knows a lot about what people think of them.

Some people see animals and pictures in clouds.  The ancient Greeks believed that Hermes, the messenger of the gods, once stole the sun's cattle, which were clouds.

In this unique picture book, Tomie introduces some of the most common types of clouds, as well as the myths and legends inspired by their shapes.  Simple, whimsical illustrations show the variations in shape and color that herald changes in the weather.

This book will tell you many things about clouds we bet you didn't know. Filled with his signature humor and gentle illustrations, Tomie dePaola's approach to nonfiction is like no other.---from the publisher
