In The Cloud Thief we visit a future world where, as a result of climate change, clouds have to be made in a factory, and are then bought and sold. 

But what happens to the poorer communities who can't afford to buy the best clouds? How do they manage?  When one child, Mara, decides to steal a cloud to help her sick father, she begins a chain of events that will change this world forever.

Find out more about The Cloud Thief from author James Nicol, who tells us what inspired his story in this short video, and reads from the start of the book.
