“Stormy Weather”, a book for children written and illustrated by celebrated author, Debi Gliori, has been short-listed for the Royal Mail Prize for children’s literature.

The book, for children under seven years old, was inspired by a creative writing residency undertaken by Debi Gliori in September 2007, run by Shetland Arts in partnership with SIC Creative Links and supported by the Scottish Book Trust’s Live Literature Funding.

Speaking about the book, Debi Gliori said, “Stormy Weather is my love letter to Shetland. It is my lullaby for the  children I met, a love song to the sea-wrapped landscape I walked and  a heartfelt thank you to the people of Shetland for making me so  welcome and so very much at home.”

The deadline for voting is the 28th January 2011 - vote at this address:

Debi Gliori’s residency was the first of four Creative Writing Residencies run by Shetland Arts in partnership with the SIC Creative Links, in Shetland Primary schools.
