Sora and the Cloud

2011 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Picture Books (Children's)

A little boy is displaced from his home when he climbs aboard a cloud that sets sail above his Japanese city. Sora is treated to a birds-eye view of a construction site, an amusement park, and a traditional kite festival. When he falls asleep on the cloud, his dreams are indistinguishable from the otherworldly reality of the journey. “Like a mobile in the breeze, Sora’s sky adventure spins all around him.” A delicate and enchanting bilingual story with exceptional watercolor scenes. Ages four to eight.
