The books are aimed at children aged 2 to 5, full of colour, easy to read and fun for both children and adults alike. Not only bright, colourful and wonderfully quirky, but The Weatherbies’ environmentally and socially conscious message is incredibly important to all of us.
Yvonne’s story is unique, a mother and child-minder, Yvonne watched her vision come to life as her hobby of writing children’s books and creating ‘The Weatherbies’ became a reality, Yvonne has previously released two books independently and is currently working on the pilot TV episode with local animation company, Flickerpix.
Author, Yvonne Fleming said;“ I am so excited and delighted to have signed a publishing deal with Tiny Tree Children’s Books. I’m overwhelmed at how well received my Weatherbies books have been. Things have kept moving forward since I self-published my first two books, “Sammy Sun is Coming Out To Play” and “Rosie Rainbows Recycling Day” last year. Signing to Tiny Tree Children’s Books is the next step in my journey. It’s been an enjoyable experience working with the Tiny Tree Children’s Book team and I’m looking forward to developing our working relationship”
Tiny Tree Publishing said: “We are incredibly excited to be working with Yvonne Fleming, James Salenga and the whole Weatherbies team on this series of books. Since we were established in 2016, our goal has been to curate a catalog of brilliant books from all over the world, so it’s very exciting to bring this fantastic Northern Irish team into the Tiny Tree family.”
