"Changeable Clouds" is a set of four booklets, all with lively designs that appeal to students and children. They contain cloud and weather photographs with brief explanatory notes in both Chinese and English. Books 1, 2 and 3 give a general introduction of different species of low, medium and high clouds.

The photographs not only able to capture the beauty of nature under different weather conditions, they also allow readers to have a deeper understanding of the atmospheric phenomena observed.
