"One of the most original and moving books of the year . . . an absolutely remarkable book" (Daily Mail)
"Inspired writing . . . it flows like melted butter and glistens as it goes . . . Blackman knows her verse forms and uses them to brilliant effect" (Guardian)
"It is funny and poignant and Blackman's use of language is wonderfully economic. This is a masterpiece of writing and a book for all ages" (TES)
"It soon develops into a cautionary tale about the way that both a friendship and a child's originality is destroyed by peer pressure. What makes it even more unusual is that it is told out of the mind of the boy who brought about the destruction. Blackman threads humour into the tragedy and (just) succeeds in giving us something to hope for" (Independent)
"Hats off to Malorie Blackman . . . Sheer poetry" (Oxford Times) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
A lyrical story, written in verse that celebrates friendship and individuality from the award-winning author of NOUGHTS AND CROSSES. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product description

Cloud Busting really brought up my thoughts on friendship. In some ways, the book was quite strange [due to the poetry] but in other ways it made me think quite hard. Mostly though, this book is absolutely magnificent but it's only short.
Written by Oska, age 10
The book is about a boy called Sam and another boy called Davey. Sam can't stand Davey until they become friends. I think the book was good because of the poetry.
Written by Harry D, age 9
I really like this book because if you don't like reading, this book has hardly any writing in! It has some drama and is about 2 friends playing, losing each other and getting back together
