Big gloomy clouds have hung over Delilah's head and heart since her beloved grandfather died.

But remembering an old trick he taught her on the farm, she lassos all the clouds--shaped like everything she dislikes from radishes to the boy who makes fun of her for wearing overalls--out of the sky as she navigates her feelings of sadness and isolation. The Cloud Lasso is a poetic meditation on loss, memory, and paying homage to those we've lost and also features two cool farm dogs.
