Kids are just too damn smart these days.
In the Cerulean Universe, the world is only just awakening to scientific discovery and invention. There’s no room for an old-fashioned weatherman like Tart Morning. And now, thanks to a ground-breaking invention called “the weathernose” – a machine that calculates weather predictions, Tart’s career is on the line. His only choice is to destroy the weathernose, but the machine’s smug little inventress, Cypress Korkul, is far too clever for him.
In his scrambling efforts to keep up with the times, Tart finds himself willing to go to ever more dastardly lengths. How far is he willing to go to get his job and his old life back? What will he find out about Cypress – and himself – along the way?
Weathernose though short was a filling story. In the beginning, Tart, the main character, was set in his ways and could probably be considered a bad person. Filled with anger after being replaced by a machine, built by a child no less, Tart was willing to do anything to get his job back and to get this little girl out of the boss’ chair.
It was amusing to watch Tart try to destroy Cypress’ invention, The Weathernose but it was fulfilling to watch the real versions of Tart and Cypress shine through and to watch their friendship bloom.
Weathernose was a beautifully written piece with a handful of different characters.
