Description

The magic of cloud watching: where daydreaming and science meet!

Parrot and Panda are very good friends, even though they see the world in very different ways. The one activity they can always agree on is cloud watching.

But on this day, where Panda sees a fearsome stormy phoenix in the sky, while Parrot sees only a classic nimbostratusus. Where Panda sees a ship tossing on the sea, Parrot can only see the science of a cumulus stratus formation. They decide to separate and watch on their own, only to find that Parrot wants to talk about the shapes and stories, and Panda misses talking about the science. They come back together and soon decidsee that cloud -watching can be about both—and, so, a Stegocumulus is born.

This unique celebration of that favourite pastime, cloud watching, is a beautiful reminder to kids to “be in the moment” and to take in the world around them. It also reminds us all that clouds, like, friendships are everchanging, and can challenge us to see the world in new ways. But while clouds are ephemeral, good friendships last forever.

A playful nonfiction section at the back that looks like pages torn from Parrot's cloud notebook, and annotated with Panda's doodles and thoughts, provides further information on cloud types.
