Raggity and the Cloud

one of the benefits of visiting Grandma is re-reading this book. The inside cover actually says Printed in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. (for the kids in the audience, wikipedia is your friend. well, more like a friend who often makes stuff up to cover for what he doesn’t know)

it’s translated from Russian and is a great story about a girl in a parched land who befriends a cloud who decides to free the water from the evil king. the plot keeps moving along with funky characters with some amazing illustrations in the hardcover version and lots of hilarious gags, this one will be fun for those of you with kids younger than, or about 12 or those that just havent grown up :) of course, this is also an indicator of our(the collective homo sapiens species’) bleak future.
