A The book is about a boy named Kip who goes to boarding school because his parents were put in jail. There Kip finds some friends named Scruggs, Juniper and Meghna. He later realizes that his friends are from another world. Kip and his friends run away from school because the teachers are very cruel. They have many adventures together.


A 1 I like that the characters can walk on clouds.

2 I like their adventures because it is very unusual.

3 I like the subjects –because the boarding school teaches unusual subjects, like, how to make poison.


A Yes I would recommend this book to a friend because this book is very interesting and a bit strange. There is a lot of imagination in the book.

It’s a brilliant and amazing book to read! I would recommend it to a friend because it’s an amazing book but the only problem is that once you

start you can’t put it down!

This is a story in the fantasy genre which keeps the reader hooked. After reading the first 2 pages, for instance, I was eager to find out what Kim does in his new stint at a boarding school: Does he jump onto a cloud? Is he caught by the guard dogs? Does he fall down and hit the rocks at the bottom? I would recommend this book to everyone for them to savour a good story and delight in the experience of walking on the clouds!
