About this Book
A wonderful story about a boy named Franklin, who is known as The Cloudspotter, with an ability to spot different kinds of clouds. When Scruffy the Dog comes along and gives a lot of distraction, Franklin finds it hard to concentrate. So he will have to choose between his friend and his hobby, but how would he do that? A beautifully realised picture book, celebrating the power of the imagination and the importance of friendship, from the creator of The Story Machine.
Reviews from Around the World
"The story begins, "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." He seems meticulous about his cloud gazing and loves being alone. So, when a dog starts hanging around he doesn't immediately love the idea.
I think this book would best resonate with sweet introverted children. Those children that can sit and colour or play an instrument for hours and would rather play alone than meet up with a group of friends. The story doesn't belittle loners or have an ending where he/she reluctantly joins a group of kids to play. In fact, Franklin is quite happy and content but eventually realises maybe- just MAYBE- once in a while it is nice to have some company (in this case in the form of a dog). For similar children, this will be encouraging and relatable." -Britty, Amazon
