MORE PUBLISHERS’ PRAISE:
We are so thrilled to have acquired the Italian rights for Weird Weather! Telling the children about what is happening to our planet and the way we could still make it right is a moral duty for us, the generation who has messed it up. Laura Ertimo and Mari Ahokoivu make it funny and entertaining, which is the best key to get the children engaged to such a relevant topic. – Alessandro Gelso, Publisher, Edizioni Il Battello a Vapore – Piemme/Mondadori Children’s Books
“We’re extremely proud to be the Hungarian publisher of Weird Weather. Minutes after opening the manuscript a few weeks ago, we knew this is a one of a kind book: not only because it deals with a crucially important topic but also because of how it deals with it. We think the illustrations and the whole layout is captivating, and the fact that the book is informative and entertaining at the same time is astonishing. We congratulate the authors and are looking forward to publishing Weird Weather next year”
“This wonderfully illustrated and rather informative book may be the perfect way to help children (and adults) understand the importance of climate change and realize that if everyone made one small step in stopping it, our world would be much better and healthier place to live in.”
“It’s a real pleasure for us to acquire the Turkish translation rights of Weird Weather. This beautifully illustrated book not only gives facts about climate change, but also presents the steps that we can take to stop this serious problem in an entertaining way. This will be a great read for children (and also for adults). “
