Why Should I Like It?

The Short Reason

Letting go • Incredible illustrations • Award-winning authors

The Longer Reason

From the critically acclaimed, award-winning creators of Ocean Meets Sky and The Night Gardener comes a whimsical and sweet tale of a young girl who cares for her pet cloud as it grows.

It's a little out of fashion to buy a pet cloud, but Lizzy doesn't mind. She's not looking for a big one or a fancy one, just one that's right for her. And she finds it in Milo.

Soon, she's 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?

Reviews 

In delicate grey shading and faded colours, the Fan Brothers’ (It Fell from the Sky) dreamy, alternative world offers a vision of a different kind of pet, a being that obligingly rains on Lizzy’s plants (a small, faint rainbow hovering just beneath it), alongside an understated meditation on change and letting go.

– Publishers Weekly, 3/7/2022

The Fan Brothers give an original tweak to the too-big-pet storyline, often seen with dinosaurs, that will charm readers of all ages. The limited use of colour—buttery yellow, cornflower blue, sherbet green—lends extra magic to the finely lined pencil drawings, especially where a faint rainbow glistens in the cloud’s mist. A sweet, imaginative tale.

– Booklist, 5/1/22

Sibling team the Fan Brothers spin a gentle, dreamy story of caretaking and letting go in the surreally gorgeous picture book Lizzy and the Cloud.

This subtle, whimsical reflection on the caretaker relationship provides many openings for discussing growth and letting go.
