Little Cloud drifts in the sky with the other clouds and has a life that any cloud would want. But Little Cloud isn't happy. She doesn't want to make thunder and rain like the other clouds. The earth below is so beautiful -- purple mountains, scarves of snow, silver-topped waves. She wants to live and play on the earth and be on her own.How will Little Cloud ever come to understand that everything has its special place in the world, most especially her?Inspired by the favorite Aesop story "The Bundle of Sticks," Toni Morrison and Slade Morrison tell a gentle and loving tale that illustrates that the whole is far mightier than any single part. Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor recipient Sean Qualls's shimmering paintings sparkle from the pages of this timeless fable.
