Follow Charlie and Matilda as they meet people from all over the world, attend school, play and work in an environment of unimaginable beauty and unexpected danger. Facing fear, finding their own strength and building relationships is an integral part of their adventure. Charlie is just an ordinary kid, worrying about making pitcher on the baseball team until…his aunt’s prediction leads him to a hidden world. Matilda unexpectedly arrives on Cloudscape and discovers an international world of adventure, danger, new friends and school! But will she ever return to Earth to be with her family, friends and her beloved horse Merry?
The paperback books are $9.00; cash and checks accepted.
Kirkus Reviews noted (2016, Cloudscape Charlie's Story) "Courtney’s lighthearted adventure offers rudimentary atmospheric science bolstered by fantastical sensory flourishes... the book excels at tactile descriptions..." Kirkus Reviews noted (2019, Cloudscape Matilda's Story) "an intuitive young heroine visits the world of Cloudscape in this middle-grade prequel... the authenticity of Matilda’s feelings (dutifully recorded in her journal) is a winning quality."
