Cloud Country by Bonny Becker


Cloud Country
by Bonny Becker


I picked this up because the art caught my eye. And then I found out that it was a book Pixar/Disney Press created. It definitely shows both in the storytelling and in the art. It's the story of a little cloudlet named Gale. She's up for her cloud test, and is so scared. She can't seem to make any of the cloud shapes/types expected of her. When she stands for her test, she tries her hardest, but just can't do it. Instead, all the clouds she creates look like real shapes. that could be spotted down on the earth below like dogs or tugboats. It turns out she is a dream cloud maker, extremely rare and special. She is encouraged to create what she is good at and bring inspiration to those of us down on the land below.

I found myself crying by the end of the book. I thought it was beautiful the way her disappointment transformed her into something so cherished who could bring happiness to us all, just as this book did. Very sweet and beautifully illustrated!
