Description

The bird-like creature started to fall out of the sky. Slowly, it turned and twisted, as if trying to get back up to the clouds. But it kept falling. Down and down, towards the ground . . .

Ellie and Jay are playing in the top field of their family farm when a mysterious creature falls from the sky, injured. The Cloud Rider needs to get back to the clouds where he belongs or the evil Werrets will take over the sky and create all sorts of terrible storms. But, when no one else in the family believes their story, Ellie and Jay realise that it is up to them alone to save the Cloud Rider . . .
