Description

Little Girl means what she says and has the resources to get results. Not one to mope away the day watching the rain pour down, Little Girl struggles into her boots, raincoat and fire fighter's helmet, gets out the ladder and heads for the clouds. Old Man is a giant who lives in the clouds and controls the weather. He does, indeed, have ""a cold in his head."" Worse, he has no loving person to tend to him. Little Girl know just how to set things right. Back at home, with a little help from her mom, she gathers together her very own cure for the common cold. Now all the remains is to get Old Man out of bed and the sun back into the sky.

About the Authors

Andrea Spalding

Born in the industrial city of Manchester England, Andrea Spalding trained as a teacher. Then, with husband David, Andrea immigrated to Canada in 1967. After living in Alberta for 24 years, Andrea and David relocated to British Columbia and live on Pender Island, one of Canada’s Southern Gulf Islands. Curiosity about her chosen country compelled Andrea to listen to other Canadian immigrants who shared tales that later became her folktale book, A World of Stories. Andrea's first children's book, The Most Beautiful Kite in the World, was selected as a Canadian Children's Book Center's "Our Choice." She has garnered awards and nominations ever since. Her fantasy novels—The Summer of Magic Quartet—are avidly read by both children and adults. Her picturebook, Secret Of The Dance, is her 30th. Written with Aboriginal Elder Alfred Scow, it has gained accolades from both the aboriginal and white communities. For more information, visist www.andreaspalding.squarespace.com.
