Publisher Comments:

This is gorgeously-packaged yet affordable all-ages fantasy is sure to become an instant classic. On their way through the city to school, Simon and his cat Jack keep taking shortcuts that lead them through fantasy worlds of wooden monsters and insatiable appetites, just for starters. Will they make back home safely? Printed in full-color, this book will be published with covers that have hand-silkscreened by the author and relief-stamped in the binding process. This will undoubtedly be one of the more handsome and unique packages in recent memory, with a brilliant graphic novel inside that justifies its elegant format. The Clouds Up Above calls to mind everything from Where the Wild Things Are to The Wizard of Oz to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, with its depiction of a fantastic world that lurks just around the corner from reality and that only children believe exists. The characterizations of Simon and Jack, with their delightfully scrappy dialogue, adds brilliant depth to the already-fantastic adventure that Crane has crafted for them. His clean, crisp drawing style calls to mind such greats as Herge and Chester Brown, and his masterful use of color adds even more depth to Crane's lovely pictures.

Synopsis:

This gorgeously packaged (yet affordable) children's fantasy has become an instant classic since its original hardcover release in 2005, as well as a perennial bestseller for Fantagraphics in three hardcover printings. This paperback edition includes five new pages not included previously.

The Clouds Above is a rip-roaring adventure about a kid named Simon, who skips school one day with his cat, Jack. They climb a magic staircase leading skyward, encounter a sad cloud named Perch and get mixed up in a conflict involving him, some nasty storm clouds and an irritable flock of birds. Will they make back home safely in time for school tomorrow?

This brilliant, full-color graphic novel doubles as a wondrous children's book, recalling such classics as Where the Wild Things Are, The Wizard of Oz and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, with its depiction of a fantastic world that lurks just around the corner from reality and that only children know exists.
