Now, that cloud looks like a train.

0:00:080:00:10

Hello. I'm Tom. I'm just doing some cloudspotting.

0:00:130:00:17

And if you look very carefully you can see lots of

0:00:170:00:20

different shapes in the clouds. And that's what today's story is called,

0:00:200:00:24

and it's all about the cloudspotter, and it's written and illustrated

0:00:240:00:29

by Tom McLaughlin.

0:00:290:00:31

Now, his real name was Franklin

0:00:310:00:33

but everyone called him the cloudspotter.

0:00:330:00:36

The cloudspotter didn't have many friends.

0:00:370:00:40

It was just him and his clouds.

0:00:400:00:43

Always.

0:00:430:00:45

He would spend his days all by himself, spotting big clouds.

0:00:450:00:50

Squeaky clouds.

0:00:500:00:52

Sneaky, pretend-they-can't-see-you clouds

0:00:520:00:55

and angry clouds.

0:00:550:00:57

You see, the cloudspotter didn't just spot clouds,

0:00:580:01:01

he spotted adventures in the sky.

0:01:010:01:03

That way...

0:01:030:01:04

..he didn't feel so alone.

0:01:060:01:08

He could swim with giant jellyfish.

0:01:090:01:12

Drive racing cars,

0:01:120:01:15

and be the king of the castle.

0:01:150:01:18

But one day everything changed.

0:01:200:01:23

The scruffy dog came along,

0:01:240:01:26

and she seemed to be looking for something too.

0:01:260:01:30

Was she after his clouds?

0:01:300:01:32

The cloudspotter wasn't happy.

0:01:320:01:34

He wasn't used to sharing his clouds with anyone.

0:01:340:01:37

But the scruffy dog didn't seem to care.

0:01:370:01:40

Wherever the cloudspotter went that bothersome dog went too.

0:01:400:01:44

No matter what time of day or night.

0:01:450:01:49

Before long, she was even playing along in his adventures, and that,

0:01:490:01:54

the cloudspotter decided, wouldn't do at all.

0:01:540:01:57

It was time for the scruffy dog...

0:01:570:02:00

to go.

0:02:000:02:01

The cloudspotter put his plan into action.

0:02:030:02:06

And at last he was alone again.

0:02:060:02:10

He should have been happy.

0:02:130:02:15

He should have been pleased.

0:02:150:02:17

However...

0:02:170:02:19

something just didn't feel right.

0:02:190:02:23

The cloudspotter was lonely.

0:02:230:02:25

Could it be, he wondered,

0:02:260:02:28

that the scruffy dog had been searching for something else?

0:02:280:02:32

Something like...

0:02:330:02:34

..a friend?

0:02:360:02:37

Because everyone knows...

0:02:390:02:42

..that two cloudspotters are better than one.

0:02:430:02:46

Especially when you are best friends.

0:02:480:02:51

It's a beautiful story.

0:02:540:02:56

Cloudspotting with a best friend is definitely more enjoyable,

0:02:560:03:00

especially if your best friend is

0:03:000:03:03

a dog.

0:03:030:03:04

And I've spotted that you're not in bed yet. Quick, go on -

0:03:050:03:09

get yourself tucked up and I'll see you very soon

0:03:090:03:12

for another bedtime story. Till then, night-night.
