Set in a sunny world of insightful and inspiring insects, Plooky and the Cloudbugle is a fabulous fable about a musical relationship between a rather crafty boy named Plooky and a delightfully melodious cricket named Conti.
The modern world is faced with a terrifying new ‘disease’, that of ‘obesity’. As people get fatter, we have come to see excess weight as unhealthy, morally repugnant and socially damaging.

Plooky has quite the knack for being able to create things out of just about any materials. However, when it comes to creating music, it would seem his abilities don’t come as naturally. He soon finds himself hopelessly out of his element (and also battling the elements) when introduced to a very unique instrument called a cloudbugle. In his hope to be able to produce sweet music for Conti’s little cricket ears to enjoy, Plooky summons some rather unpredictable results, making for a rather stormy relationship.
Filled with flowing rhymes, bold illustrations, and heartfelt emotions, this second children’s book by Doc Colour is truly an enchanting tale for bug-lovers and music-lovers alike!
