Lizzy and the Cloud is a whimsical and sweet tale of a young girl who cares for her pet cloud as it grows, from the creators of the critically acclaimed The Night Gardener and Ocean Meets Sky. Its a little out of fashion to buy a pet cloud, but Lizzy doesnt mind. Shes not looking for a big one or a fancy one, just one thats right for her. And she finds it in Milo. Soon, shes taking Milo out on walks with her family, watering Milo right on schedule and seeing Milo grow and grow. But what happens when her pet cloud gets too big for Lizzy to handle? This charming story with beautiful illustrations from the exceptionally talented Fan brothers will enchant readers young and old alike, teaching children an unpredictable journey of growth and loving something enough to set it free.

Absolutely gorgeous! The historical city setting rendered in pencil, spot coloured with soft shades except for bright yellows; the child Lizzy with her cloud of dark hair, wanting an old-fashioned kind of cloud as a pet; and the gentle message of nurturing, change, and letting go. This is another perfect picture book by the amazing Fan brothers. #Canadian #kidlit

Terry and Eric Fan are an amazing duo of illustrators. I love the way their neutral grey pencil drawings have been spot coloured digitally. So many whimsical details to find in each spread, like oranges for 1 cent; a shop called The Stopped Click; different kinds of wheeled vehicles; a dirigible; and of course Lizzy, walking home with her new pet cloud.
