Cloudia has always had her head in the clouds.

She is a cloud expert and has spent all of her life dreaming of seeing the elusive Cloud Man - an extremely rare creature who lives a quiet life high up in the sky.

Follow the clues to the very top of Cloud Mountain where the views are always surprising - but if you are lucky, you may see something very special indeed.

Come on a magical puppet adventure through the clouds this winter.
