REVIEWS

“… I enjoyed reading…” “… interesting and original…” -Fiona Kenshole, formerly of Laika Entertainment, producers of Oscar nominated, animated feature films Coraline, Paranorman and The Boxtrolls

“It’s quite… (pardon the pun), very sweet and this idea of edible clouds is very, very cute. You have a beautiful first line. Really wonderful… very magical… a lovely idea.” –Clare Hallifax, Scholastic Australia (Omnibus Books)

“This is a really fun and fresh idea.” –Lisa Berryman, HarperCollins Publishers Australia

“…very nice story and concept.” Emma Borghesi, Brolly Books Australia

“I liked Rocky Road Airlines.”  – Suzanne O’ Sullivan, Hachette Australia Books

“Lennice A. Norwood’s Philippe and The Marshmallow and Candy Floss Clouds will confirm what kids have been sure of forever—those fluffy clouds are actually candy. Her story is an imaginative delight as people of all ages swoon over the wonders of a sky that rains candy drops. Norwood’s color pencil illustrations are marvellous! I especially appreciated the distinctly individual faces she gives her characters and her attention to details. And while the rainbow bearing fruits and vegetables brings a bit of healthy dose of reality back, the upbeat and festive air of the story continues unabated. Philippe and The Marshmallow and Candy Floss Clouds is most highly recommended.”- Jack Magnus, Reader’s Favorite

#BookReview of #PhilippeandTheMarshmallowandCandyFlossClouds from #ReadersFavorite – https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/philippe-and-the-marshmallow-and-candy-floss-clouds⠀ ⠀ Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite⠀ ⠀ Philippe and The Marshmallow and Candy Floss Clouds is a children’s picture book written and illustrated by Lennice A. Norwood. Phillippe knew something that no one else in the world did. Clouds are actually edible, and they taste just like marshmallow and candy floss. He and his parents always watched the weather report on television, but one day the weatherman came out with an absolutely astounding report that confirmed his belief: “We’ll have partly candy skies today.” The news that clouds were not only edible but absolutely delicious stirred people to venture up into the skies to get their own tastes of clouds. They jumped out of airplanes and floated by parachute past the delicious treats. Others scooped up the clouds from air balloons. But the favorite method of all was traveling by Rocket Plane. Phillippe and his parents opted to try the Rocket Plane and anxiously queued up for their ride.⠀ ⠀ Lennice A.
