It’s not often you find a children’s book told completely in verse, with stunning illustrations that tell the story in a vibrant visual way. But, thankfully, the two-volume ‘Little Tommy and the Kingdom of Clouds’ is such a book, and as such deserves to become a treasure of childhood literature.
The books outline in a unique and original way the adventures of Little Tommy, a small boy, who, thanks to a magical ring he finds, is whisked away to the enchanting Kingdom of Clouds. Here he befriends a whole host of animals with fantastic talents, particularly in sports and the arts.
The stories highlight the qualities of imagination, creativity and hope, as well as the importance of friendship and following your dreams. Each passage in both volumes is reinforced by the superlative illustrations of Ukraine artist, Nick Solonair, which I am sure both children and adults will love.
