The Cloud Diary

The Cloud Diary - Tony  Gilbert This is a short story that was extremely touching.I wasn't sure what to expect, but this story is told from a six year old child's point of view about the loss of his mother, and it made me cry. The pain of losing a loved one affects everyone, even the young, but they also have their own way of dealing with it. However, they also feel confusion as adults tend not to explain about death, either because they want to spare the child, or because they are unable to. This story is very short and simple, but it definitely packs an emotional punch.Tony Gilbert has written a sweet and touching tale that will stay with me for some time to come. If you have lost someone, or even if you haven't, this is a MUST READ for adults and children alike. - Lynn Worton
