In this second humorous adventure, Freddie and Gingersnap, two flying dragons, are buzzing around seeking a cloud. There seems to be nothing in the sky and then suddenly a strange object appears that may be a cloud. Actually, it is an airship with two people in it, but Freddie and Gingersnap don't realize that.

The two folks in the airship strike up a conversation with the dragons which serves to confuse them since they think this is a cloud. The whole situation becomes a bit surrealistic, especially when the airship duo conjures up a wild storm (this is highlighted in a colorful two page spread).

Throughout the narrative the airship characters sing a song entitled A Cloud's Song (the words are included) and by story's end your little one might well be singing this catchy tune too.

Although it is a bit nonsensical, this picture book will appeal to youngsters who love silly stories and odd looking characters. Freddie and Gingersnap certainly fit the bill when it comes to enjoying funny, rather bizarre situations.
