Rhode Island author Kevin Mulhern’s children’s book Cody the Cloud (ages 3-8) features a strong, positive message about treating others with respect, not bullying others, and believing in oneself. It’s an inspiring story about a cloud who can’t make it rain, a boy who can’t work on his father’s farm, and how, in spite of being made fun of, the two unite when a drought strikes to prove how the power of love and friendship can literally save the world.

Since its publication by Mascot Books in 2015, Kevin has read Cody the Cloud at over 150 schools, libraries, bookstores, book fairs, malls and more. The greatest honor for Kevin came in 2016 when Cody the Cloud was chosen as “Children’s Book of the Year” by New England Head Start, the local chapter of the national Head Start social services organization. Cody the Cloud has been mentioned on Channel 10 WJAR News on two occasions for its fundraising initiatives and Kevin was interviewed on “The Rhode Show” to discuss the charitable endeavors he’s pursued with the book. Cody has also been featured in numerous local print publications and radio interviews. It’s carried by Barnes and Noble and many major retailers as well as Amazon.

Kevin wrote Cody the Cloud largely to help raise funds for charitable causes he’s passionate about, donating a portion of proceeds from sales over the years to a wide range of charities including cancer research, helping inner city youth, assisting children with physical or developmental disabilities, veterans’ causes, and animal shelters, to name a few. Kevin has donated thousands of dollars to charities thanks to the support Cody has gotten.

  1. I also donate 10% of my books sales to a non profit, Friends of the Providence Animal Care and Control Center, so I was excited, Kevin, to learn that you donate to charitable causes too! Well done!


  2. I love this book and purchased it for a friend’s little girl when she was in the hospital. She asked me to read it to her over and over and it is now well-worn. This book has certainly made the world a better place. Thanks, Kevin.
