Hammerle, Nina (Author) Hammerle, Nina (Illustrator)

What a neighbourhood! The wild and wonderful house in the clouds is still swathed in darkness, but each time we pass from one side to the next, a window lights up. And behind each window, there is a new inhabitant with a story to discover. As well as the UFO dachshund Poldi, for instance, we have Irving Clevercloggs, who’s busily counting peas, Dick and Harry, some bouncing bears and Finn’s wife, who’s an astronaut.

Whimsical, tongue-in-cheek, wonderfully wacky: Nina Hammerle’s HOUSE IN THE CLOUDS introduces children to the joys of discovery and has them returning to look at the pages again and again - and to laugh their heads off.
