Description

Tomie de Paola knows a lot about clouds. He also knows a lot about what people think of them. The Greeks, for example, believed that Hermes, the messenger of the gods, once stole the sun's cattle, which were clouds. In this unique approach to the sky, you can learn about the ten most common clouds. You can learn about the myths that have been inspired by their different shapes. You can learn that clouds tell us about coming changes in the weather. This book will tell you many things about clouds we bet you didn't know. We hope you enjoy it!
