Most of the time, the diminutive Cloudette likes being small since her bigger cloud friends address with cute names and her size makes it possible for her to do things that the others cannot. But sometimes she wishes that she could do something big, like the others. When a blustery storm blows her to an unfamiliar area, Cloudette makes new friends and starts a little rainstorm of her own, creating a pond from a little puddle so that the frogs have water in which to play. I'm not quite sure why she couldn't--or wouldn't--join forces with the bigger clouds earlier in the book, and I'm sure young readers will easily get the message that even the smallest among us can make a big difference. The ink, pastel, colored pencil, and watercolor illustrations suit the story quite well and highlight Cloudette's personality.
