內容簡介 While hiking in the mountains with his parents, Albert tumbles off a cliff?but is saved by the cloud children who utter magic words that make him very light and keep him from falling. Albert has a wonderful time jumping, swimming, painting, and racing in the sky with the cloud children. That is until he remembers his mother and father and his own little bed at home. It takes the cloud queen, the man in the moon, and a few more magic words to return Albert to earth. Albert had always had his head in the clouds! But when one day, high up in the mountains with his parents, he falls off a cliff, he ends up quite literally in the clouds. There he has fun playing with the cloud children, jumping, swimming in the rain, painting pictures with rainbows, and walking in the slipstream of an airplane. And then something reminds him of home and his own little bed…but no one has ever asked to return from cloudland before!
