Edifying, family-orientated - just Gliori...

Stormy Weather is intended to follow on from the environmental theme Gliori espoused in The Trouble with Dragons, but with a stark and reassuring difference. Whilst a storm is raging outside, the various characters are to be found snuggled up inside with their parents.

The undulating rhythm rises and falls like cresting waves onto a beach, moving seamlessly from the dark imagery of a storm to the calm hues of clear skies and the soothing voice of reassurance telling little ones that their parents are always there to keep them safe.

With its sumptuous illustrations and rhythmic prose, Glioriís ubiquitous style is in glorious abundance. The message is one of the harsh realities of life tempered with the comforting promise that the grownups in a childís life are there for them. It is the perfect bedtime story for your little one - stunning to look at, beautifully written and with a real sense of familial bonds; there can be no simpler way of communicating such a pivotal ideal to your children.
