Ife a lot fun Until the day something terrible happensA funny and sad story told completely in vers Cloud Busting is a captivating story about one of the harshest aspects of school life for many children the painful destructive act of bullying This story features Sam the bully and Davey his victim as the main characters As is the case in most such situations Sam is not short of supporters and Davey s suffering is the sort that would tug at many hearts This is very much a tale of emotions pain fear confidence at both extremes of the spectrum the blush of a schoolboy crush and after a period of reflection induced by a potentially life threatening incident finally regret on the bully s part A gripping touching story by any measure however what I found most fascinating about this book was its superbly creative presentation The entire story is told through poetry poetry of various types that seamlessly flow into each other The unusual form is very obvious yet not at all distracting as the strong story line urges the reader on The simple vocabulary including some slang would serve well to distract poetry averse readers from the fact that this story is an anthology of poems Further Blackman has very creatively utilised one of the poems in the book to demonstrate how teachers can transform poetry averse children into enthusiastic budding poets In this particular poem Mr McKee a teacher who is clearly passionate about the subject of poetry seized and capitalised on a teaching moment and drawing upon the children s experiences of rap and pop music was able to ignite in them a desire to write poetry Cloud Busting in my humble opinion is a perfect tool for busting children s misconceptions of poetry as boring and for old people while vividly yet sensitively addressing the issue of bullying
