A friendly little cloud visits destinations all around the globe, bringing rain with it wherever it goes, but no one is ever happy to welcome it – to them, all the cloud ever does is ruin things, like campfires, new hairdos, souvenir paintings and days at the beach. Frustrated and sad because it always has to apologise for its presence, the puffy cloud retreats to the North Pole. Sweet and lovely, ‘Once in a While’ shows us that everyone has a special and valuable gift to offer.
