His real name was Franklin. But everyone called him The Cloudspotter ...

Have you ever looked up at the sky to see a whole new world developing in the clouds? You have? Then you'll love this book about Franklin. There isn't a single cloud that Franklin can't spot - big ones, small ones, silly ones, sneaky pretend-they-can't-see-you ones. But when Scruffy Dog comes along, things begin to change for Franklin. How can he concentrate on cloudspotting when Scruffy is such a distraction? And what's more important - his hobby or his friend?

A beautifully realised picture book, celebrating the power of the imagination and the importance of friendship, from the creator of The Story Machine.
