Review by James Douglas
The Cloud Hunters is a story all about Christien, a boy who wants to join his best friend Jennie, who is a cloud hunter. Set in the future, where ecological changes have turned everyday things upside down (have you ever imagined sky-swimming?) Christien persuades Jennie to let him go with her to rescue her father. Along the way they meet many challenges including rescuing a sky-whale .The whole book reinforces the importance of family and friendship. The Cloud Hunters is an unusual story, its interesting but not and really quite exciting. I think it’s suitable for young teenage readers.
