Answers

Hatchet is depressed and he just wants everything to end. He wants the clouds to just come down and smother him and make everything go away. He says:

With his eyes closed and his mind open he lay

on the rock through the night, lay and hated and

wished for it to end and thought the word Cloud-

down, Clouddown through that awful night. Over

and over the word, wanting all his clouds to come

down, but in the morning he was still there.

Clouds are in the sky high and alive but when the cloud come down, its no longer a cloud. ITS FOG. (He bascically wants to die)

Our 5th grade class made a connection with Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh .  Eeyore is always depressed and is frequently drawn with a cloud over him to represent his depression.  We decided that "clouddown" meant that Brian was wishing for his own personal clouds of depression to come down and fade away.
