Reviews

"Her [Cloudette] 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." --UrbanBaby.com

"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

"Lichtenheld's depictions of Cloudette puffing herself up for a fulsome downpour will delight children, and funny turns of phrase ("Even the higher-ups were impressed") will engage adults, too." --Kirkus Reviews

"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 (2010) 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
