Soiling, or encopresis, affects one or two of every hundred children. Its roots can be physical, emotional, or both, and it can leave children and their families feeling embarrassed, frustrated, and isolated.

Clouds and Clocks is the story of Andy and the treatment he receives from both a physician and a therapist. Not every child needs all the help that Andy gets, but with this gentle story every reader can discover that he or she is not alone and that there is plenty of help, regardless of the problem's underlying causes.
