High in the Clouds by Paul McCartney


High in the Clouds is the insightful children’s story, published in 2005.  The collaborative work of bestselling children’s author Philip Ardagh, film director Geoff Dunbar, and Paul McCartney.  Yes, the legendary, knighted, world famous, singing, song writing, record breaking, Beatle, Paul McCartney.  These prized artists combine to make an emotional, exciting, and delightful animal adventure story.

We begin as our hero, Wirral the Squirrel, loses his home and family to destructive human development.  Wirral’s journey takes him to the massive human city, where he meets friends and enemies alike.  In pursuit of peace and safety, Wirral and his friends fight the odds and evils of the world.  Following his mothers final words, they search for the island sanctuary of Animilia.

This tragic, poignant story has a positive energy and is full of humour.  The mature themes are made accessible to a youth audience.  Touching on relevant issues of nature preservation and global capitalism.  Assisting a new generations awareness of the perils in the modern world.

Rumours of this tale being crafted into a feature film, should get children excited everywhere.  The fun, magical, and emotional story should transform to the big screen flawlessly.  And would feature a soundtrack by one of the most decorated composers in the world.

High in the Clouds is a story all children will love, and should be a staple in their library.  The word count is higher than a typical children’s book but not quite a chapter book, so make sure your kids are ready to sit for a while.  Because this is one that parents wont want to put down.

Thanks booknerds, don’t let those trees die in vain, read a book.
