This is the story of a boy who could weave cloth out of clouds. The color of the thread would change throughout the day, as the clouds’ colors shifted with the changing light. There was gold in the morning, white in the afternoon, and crimson in the evening. The boy had learned from his mother to only use as much as he needed, nothing more. But when the boy’s amazing scarf caught the eye of the king as he rode through town, the boy was ordered to create a scarf for the king. The king was pleased with the scarf and immediately ordered the boy to create a cloak and also dresses for the Queen and the Princess. The boy spun and spun, pulling the clouds from the sky until there were no clouds left at all. Then the rain stopped falling and a terrible drought hit the country. It will take two children to figure out how to fix it.
