The Weatherboy

Pimm Van Hest (Author) Kristof Devos (Illustrator)


"The over-arching themes of being oneself and letting the sunshine into our hearts is solid. The illustrations in this book are stunning ... folksy and beautifully evoking the mood of both boys and weather." - Kids' Book Review

On a gray day in spring something magical happened. A little boy was born, and immediately the sun started to shine. Together with his first tears, gentle raindrops fell down. The boy grew older and changed and the weather changed along with him. Everyone in the village started to call him the Weatherboy. At first the Weatherboy liked being unique, but that changed, too. Because everyone wanted something from him. Sun, coldness, snow, thunder, lightning, hail. 'I want, I want, I want ...!' It made the boy so sad that he left. He walked farther and farther and with each step, he felt more lonely and unhappy. The world got covered in snow and ice. And just when the Weatherboy had almost given up all hope, there was a knock on his door ...

A unique fairytale about a boy who learns, with ups and downs, how important it is to stand up for yourself and to keep believing in yourself. For children ages 6 and up.
