Cody Simpson's mother and sister, Angie and Alli, spin a touching, luminously illustrated tale inspired by the singer's lullaby about the treasured memories of growing up in the tradition of The Wonderful Things You Will Be. As she walks along a quiet beach, a mother looks to the sky and sees memories of her young daughter's life forming in the clouds--from first steps to riding a bike to finding her own voice and path. Each remembrance brought to life is sweet and tender, and as the mother looks back fondly, she embraces and celebrates the passage of time. This story is a unique family collaboration, with Angie and Alli pulling inspiration from Cody's music, and the book includes a download link to a version of the song "Clouds" sung by Cody and Brad Simpson, his father. Siblings and world-renowned entertainers Cody, Alli, and Tom Simpson have always recognized the importance and meaning of family, thanks in large part to the support of their parents, Angie and Brad. Even as their accomplishments take them around the world, the ties between them are unbreakable and enduring.

These rhymed musings about what to be on Halloween will give readers/listeners dress-up ideas that they may never have considered-and present simple, inexpensive homemade ways to achieve those ends with items easily found around the house." (Kirkus starred review) "In springy rhymed verse, Eaddy captures her heroine's inventive vision as she explores costume options while her inanimate menagerie patiently looks on. She gives multiple options a whirl, sourcing domestic props: 'Or what about an elephant?/ I could be one of those.// With pillowcases for my ears,/ a sock could be my nose.' Rendered digitally, pictures by Fleming give the wide-eyed, ginger-haired protagonist ample personality and energy, and imbue her toy animals with a winsome homespun quality." (Publishers Weekly)
