    I haven't read this in years but this was one of my favourite picture books when I was younger I'm trying to track down a copy of it at the moment It tells the story of a little boy who gets lost and goes on an adventure with 'Hoo' who helps him understand the feelings of sadness and eventually finds the way back home It's a very calming read for young children The illustrations are beautiful and a KS1 class could do some lovely skyline paintings in this style whilst discussing times when they have felt lost or alone

    Re readI bought this on a whim for myself as the cover proudly proclaimed that it was 'Profound and evocative' and that the illustrator had won awards for a short animated film What I got was a cute story about a lost boy meeting a lost cloud in the desert Just cute is fine but not uite what I was expectingI tried reading it to the youngest member of the household Their review I liked Hoo because he was a cute little cloud There's that word again cuteSome reviews appear to see this as profound and evocative story but expecting that experience may lead to disappointment again as some of the reviews show I would say that if you read it expecting a cute story then you will like this

    Oscar and Hoo written by Theo and illustrated by Michael Dudok de Wit is a children’s picture book aimed at small children upwards I’m sure any class of primary school children would enjoy having it read to them Even the older children who feel they have outgrown such things can find it relaxing to slip back into the world of the smaller carefree child where anything is possibleThe basic story tells of a little boy called Oscar who lives alone with his busy parents he loves to look out of his window and daydream with his ‘head in the clouds’ We find Oscar at the beginning daydreaming gazing out at the sky while his parents run around madly preparing for their holiday for which they are late We follow a series of pictures showing them making a mad dash from home to airport to flying to landing to a confused disembarkation in the desert with camels and his parents distracted by maps directions and pointing camel guides The book uses the visual both with its drawings layout and text Some pages are ‘busy’ laid out story board style where you must follow the seuence of events like a comic book Here the text is small or even no text; just follow the story from the pictures Then at the point where we see the confusion in the desert and you turn the page bam you have a large double page visual of a huge expanse of desert and sky dramatically taking up the 2 pages in striking sand yellow and dark sky blue and over in the bottom right hand corner is a little tiny Oscar Here the text is enlarged for impact and we have in the top left hand corner the simple words ‘all alone’ Oscar has been forgotten in the mad rushThe illustrations throughout the book are stunning and everything is very thoughtfully laid out for maximum impact; from Oscar’s early panic when he finds himself alone and dashes aimlessly shouting “Mum Dad” to the moment Hoo the little lost cloud befriends him A delightful seuence follows of Oscar and Hoo comforting each other playing together with Hoo changing cloud shapes for Oscar’s entertainment to Hoo being lookout from on high to help with the search for Oscar’s parents Finally with Hoo’s help Oscar is rescued and we have comforting scenes of him being cuddled drinking being bathed and put into his bedThe book takes us full circle near the end where Oscar is again right where we found him staring out of his window only now he smiles hovering just outside is Hoo So now Oscar has his little cloud friend Hoo with him wherever he goes For a little picture book this has everything A message for parents to try not to lose focus on what’s truly important to the importance for children of having a little friend or attachment all their own even a little cloud called Hoo As already mentioned the illustrations are powerful and stunning and the premise of the story a little boy with his head in the clouds is surely a celebration of childhood and the imagination

    I love this book It is so cute and darlingHoo the cloud said But if I rain all my tears I'll vanish At the end of the book Hoo cried with happiness So does that mean he'll vanish? Or is it just crying with sadness that will make Hoo vanish? Either way I'm sure he'll return as all clouds do This is one of my favourites
