Sharon Lynch grew up in Ireland where the clouds off the Atlantic are extremely well formed and gather into extraordinary shapes. It was a favorite pastime of hers as a child to watch for peculiar cloud shapes and compare them with those her brothers saw. This fascination with clouds followed her into adulthood, inspiring her to paint pictures of people in the clouds to amuse her daughter. These pictures continued to evolve and take shape, eventually becoming the beginnings of her new children’s book, The Nimbles of Nimbus, published by AuthorHouse.

The Nimbles of Nimbus is an endearing children’s story which brings the clouds to life in the form of the Nimbles who live on the cloud island of Nimbus.

A little Nimble called Skittle and her best friend, Jumble, are just beginning their summer vacation from cloud school. They have always enjoyed watching human children playing below and always wanted to meet one, but there are rules on Nimbus. One of the most important of those rules is clouds are not allowed to simply float down and say hello.

Down on the ground, a girl named Kate has always enjoyed watching the clouds change shape. She often imagined they might be real characters. Little did she know that she was right and that she would soon meet them.

The adventures of Kate, Skittle and Jumble form a heartwarming and innocent tale. Parents will love sharing The Nimbles of Nimbus with their children.
