Beyond the Clouds is author Kady Oliker’s gem for children who’ve suffered the loss of a grandparent. In this first book of the Kippi the Conqueror series, Kippi finds herself touring “the Beyond” with her beloved grandfather, giving her comfort that he’s alright and able to look down on his family. Beyond the Clouds is a beautiful story with a timely premise in regard to the Covid-19 deaths, but also a timeless message for all kids suffering the loss of a loved one. The professional and expressive illustrations complement the story nicely. The creative and cute plot outweighs the sometimes forced and imperfect rhyme. Definitely recommended for grieving children. Bonus – Beyond the Clouds is available as a hardcover on Amazon, currently for almost the same price as the softcover. Ebook is also available.

Meet the Author:
Kady Oliker loves to craft stories. She has an affinity for having conversations with the characters that dance around her living room and also enjoys eavesdropping when out at cafes. Her best, and possibly worst habit, has been putting unassuming family members and friends in her short stories. When not writing, you can find her on the tennis court or traveling the world with her husband, who graciously shares their home with the fictitious people that run through the pages of her books.
