Product Description

Review

Lovely, funny, whimsical book...the sheer joy you will have in seeing a giant's nose created from a mass of water vapour should inspire you to spend a lot more time with your head in the clouds... (Weather Magazine)

Praise for Gavin Pretor-Pinney's previous books (.)

'His style is genial, his enthusiasm uplifting and his book nothing less than a subtle but glorious mantra for a way of life.' (Metro on THE CLOUDSPOTTER'S GUIDE)

Has all the quirky humour that made the last one a bestseller (thelondonpaper on THE CLOUD COLLECTOR'S HANDBOOK)

Small enough to fit in your pocket, and with a good dollop of humour, it's the perfect companion for a gloomy day (New Scientist on THE CLOUD COLLECTOR'S HANDBOOK)

'Read this eye-opening and amusingly written book and you will realise that beautiful as they are clouds are not just put there for decoration, they are truly awesome things.' (Daily Mail on THE CLOUDSPOTTER'S GUIDE)

Book Description

A feast for all cloud-appreciators with a sense of humour - a collection of stunning photos of clouds in the shape of surprising things from the author of the bestselling THE CLOUDSPOTTER'S GUIDE.

As with the first book this second Clouds That Look Like Things is a great book not only to look at but also full of useful info for the growing number of cloudspotters out there. Giant fish,Homer Simpson,Dragons and Toppless sunbathers are all in here as well as my own addition!! As with all of Gavin's books there's a great deal of humour involved while also being very informative on the subject too.
Not intersested in clouds?I'm sure this will make you look at them in a very different light now and you'll find youself looking for the next topless sunbather in the sky :)

This was a very nice book to purchase, and I am sharing it now with others who love the clouds as much as I do. The pictures are large and clear, and the colors are beautiful. A nice book to have.

Wonderful photography! Reminds me of childhood times when one could lie down outside and stare at clouds,making up stories for the different shapes that could be recognized --caused a lot of arguments too if one disagreed about naming them --but they changed so quickly. Most enjoyable.

As soon as I read the title I was hooked. I had always been interested in the ephemeral way clouds can look like all sorts of other things such as mountains, seas, UFOs etc.

A lovely stocking filler that shows you pictures of many clouds and inspires you to get out there and look for some of your own
