About this item

In this utterly charming picture book, Lori Doody tells the story of Kate, a little girl very eager for the fun of summer to begin, but whose plans for bonfires and picnics are squelched by relentless rain, drizzle, and fog. In simple language and with bright, playful illustrations, Doody captures perfectly the achingly long pause that Newfoundlanders know so well as they await the capelin (small food fish) whose arrival is said to signal the return of summer and good weather to the island's shores.

Young listeners will have fun finding capelin, or the creatures that eat them, hidden in some of the illustrations. Capelin Weather is an engaging introduction to Newfoundland for other young readers - with whales, icebergs, and those beautiful silvery capelin that cause such a stir when they arrive on the beaches.

A wonderful celebration of Newfoundland weather, for those who live under it and for those who live away. This book will be an instant hit for Newfoundlanders at home and abroad, and will resonate with any reader who knows what it's like to long for summer's warmth.
