Episode 79: The Cloud, Chapter 19

 Hi All,

Just a reminder that we are recording a novella that Mr. Chris and I wrote. The story, about kids solving a mystery using their technology skills, has twenty-five chapters.  
Last episode, we brought you Chapter 18, where The Cloud had Mr. Brisbane come to the
library to help them with their science project so they could test if he was the cause
of the rampant illness in the school by having other people in another environment around
him. In the end, the foursome found that a sort of sickness captured only one of the library
volunteers, but it was not what The Cloud expected.

Did you know that you can help the Cloud? Simply share a picture of the weather that is happening in your neck of the woods at  We'll place them on the the class website at to help out The Cloud with their science fair data!  


We, at the Night Light Stories Household, are so 
very grateful for all of our listeners!
