He learns he will not be allowed to return until he can defeat the lightning, which has been hurling raindrops from the clouds. Many adventures await him in this strange land.

                                                                   My Review
                                                              Rating: Four Stars
Okay, this book was so cute. The characters, the story, it was super charming.  Especially Drip, he was adorable. I loved his vigor for preparing food for Thomas. xD  
  The writing was done very well too. Though you would think a world where raindrops walk and talk could get confusing, it wasn’t. It wasn’t expounded upon really, but it did explain a bit why they could. The lands we went to were seriously so cool too! Like, I especially liked the Flame’s land. *whispers* It is like seriously cool.
   My only problem was, how the little raindrops could cry if they themselves were water, and how they could have ice boxes when they would have had to froze some of their own to get one….. Anyways, those aren’t a big deal though so….
   Overall, it was fast paced, endearing, and a very enjoyable story. I recommend it for anyone looking for a fun, lighthearted read. I’m sure you’d enjoy this book.
