Maghera based children’s author, Yvonne Fleming, has signed an international publishing deal with a leading publisher, with the first release ‘Colin Cloud is Making Shapes’ available from August 16
The worldwide deal with Tiny Tree Children’s Books offers Yvonne the opportunity to develop the already successful 'Weatherbies' series, introducing her books to a new audience internationally.
"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,” the author said.
The Weatherbies bring the weather to life and aim to make learning fun using weather themed characters.
The books are aimed at children aged two to five and are full of colour and easy to read.
While bright, colourful and wonderfully quirky, The Weatherbies also carry an environmentally and socially conscious message.
Mother and child-minder Fleming has previously released two books independently and is currently working on the pilot TV episode with local animation company, Flickerpix.
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.”
