Synopses & Reviews
In this funny and tender picture book for the youngest child, a fluffy cloud gets a job (with the help of his friend the police helicopter) as a police officer. But no matter how hard he tries, the qualities that make him a cloud seem to get in the way of his duties. He blocks the sun at the park instead of helping people and obscures traffic at an intersection instead of directing it. Upset, the cloud starts to cry. And it's his streaming tears—which inadvertently put out a fire in a burning building—that lead him to his true calling in life: as a firefighter!
Realizing his dream of becoming a police officer, a fluffy cloud is saddened when his cloudy make-up gets in the way of helping out his fellow officers, yet after shedding some tears and, in the process, putting out a big fire, the fluffy cloud finally discovers his true calling in life!
