Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Sometimes being small can have its advantages. If you're a little cloud like Cloudette, people call you cute nicknames, and you can always find a good spot to watch the fireworks. But what about when you want to do something big, like help a giant garden grow, or make a brook babble? This charming book gets at the heart of what it means to make a difference no matter your size. Young children will find much to relate to in Cloudette as they follow her on her pursuit for greatness. A Christy Ottaviano Book
Review Quote*Cloudette : "Her [Cloudette's] tale raises questions relevant to little children: Is there anything good about being small? Will I ever be as good as the big kids? What do clouds do anyway? They'll like the answers." - The New York Times Book Review "Cloudette gives a sky-high and playful perspective on our atmosphere and giving the world all that we have." - "Little people who feel small and want to do important things will be inspired by Cloudette and will cheer when she finds her own pond-making mission." - BookPage "Reminiscent of the determination and courage of The Little Engine That Could, this title delivers its message with charm." - School Library Journal "The creator of Bridget's Beret offers here another appealing story featuring a plucky heroine. Applying a full-color palette to his watercolor, ink, and colored-pencil cartoons, Lichtenheld makes use of varying page space and panel techniques to add subtle details to his narrative." - Booklist "That Cloudette is neither bullied nor intimidated is an important point; she's the one who feels she has a special gift to give, and she solves her problem independently. Neatly constructed and nicely pitched, the message of self-reliance comes through as clear as a cloudless day." - Publishers Weekly
