"The vivid, brilliant illustrations bring this simple pourquoi tale to life in a highly engaging way," from the author of Sun and Moon Sisters (School Library Journal).
Cloud Princess lives high in the sky, together with Miss Sun and Miss Moon, but she wants to discover what life on Earth is like. So one day she drifts down to Earth and sees the cars and the flowers and the people that live there. Unfortunately, sinking down to Earth sparks a curious change in her—she begins to turn into water! She dashes back to her home in the sky, but loved Earth so much that she visits every Spring—and brings the rain along with her.
"Le's illustrations are absolutely stunning, filled with vibrant colors and movement as the Cloud Princess explores. The title character is ethereal yet relatable. Her cloud-hair is delightfully voluminous; her face expresses her initial loneliness and then her curiosity and wonder. The plot has the gentle simplicity characteristic of folktales. The book provides an excellent springboard for discussion about storytelling and how cultures through the ages have used stories to explain their observations of the natural world." —School Library Journal
"All the sweet expressions and softly variegated colors throughout create delicate visual harmonies. There's lots of eye candy in individual scenes." —Kirkus Reviews
