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.
Alli Simpson is a singer, model, actress, and spokesperson. She has a popular YouTube channel and is a former host of “The Alli Simpson Show” on Radio Disney. She lives in Los Angeles, California, and Sydney, Australia.
Lucy Fleming has been an avid doodler and bookworm since early childhood. Drawing always seemed like so much fun, but she never dreamed it could be a full-time job! She studied art and practiced drawing every day, and in no time, went on to graduate from the University of Lincoln (UK) with a degree in illustration. She lives and works in a small town in England with her family and a little black cat. When not at her desk she prefers nothing more than to be outdoors in the sunshine with a hot cup of tea.
