Blue Boy Crumpets lives with his family in the land of clouds. No one from the land below can see Blue Boy, but he can see them. He loves watching the children play, and longs to go there. One day, his cousin tells him a secret. "You can go to the land below. I will show you how if you dare to go." Blue Boy is afraid, but his desire to visit the land below is greater than his fear. So he jumps on a snowflake and tumbles downward. Down and down he goes, fearing for his life as one snowflake after the other melts, and then he lands on the perfect snowflake that carries him safely to his destination. What he encounters on the land below is not at all what he expects. Instead of children, there are tiny men with pointed ears and funny hats. And he has to work! Blue Boy is no stranger to work, so he does his best to do a good job. He even has a lot of fun. But he soon becomes homesick. Will he ever get home again?
