Review: The Cloudspotter by Tom McLaughlin


The Cloudspotter

by Tom McLaughlin

His real name was Franklin. But everyone called him The Cloudspotter. The Cloudspotter didn’t have many friends. It was just him and his clouds, always…

The Cloudspotter spends his time all by himself spotting not just clouds but adventures in the sky. This way, he doesn’t feel so alone. Then, one day, an unexpected visitor appears in his adventures and it throws everything up in the air. Could it be that two cloudspotters  are better than one?

A beautifully realised picture book, celebrating the power of imagination and the importance of friendship. Perfect for anyone the has ever seen shapes in the clouds.

    The Cloudspotter is a gentle story about the value of friendship and is supported by wonderfully simple yet vivid illustrations. It takes the young child on a short but sharp journey of how sharing something can be better than spending your time alone. Published by: Bloomsbury in June 2015, with thanks to Bloomsbury for supplying this copy to review. Recommended Retail Price $22.99 (Hardcover) Recommended Age: 0-5 years My Rating: 4.5/5
