In September 2020, it was announced that Liam will be writing a children's non-fiction book about the weather.
Big Picture Press, an imprint of Bonnier Books UK, acquired the non-fiction children’s book from Liam. Katie Haworth, Editorial Director, acquired World rights directly from Dutton for an August 2022 publication.
The non-fiction title will be for ages 9-12 and will be a gorgeously illustrated offering that gives young readers clear and authoritative knowledge on everyone’s favourite topic of conversation and busts some popular weather myths.
Liam Dutton commented:
“Through writing this book, I want to inspire children - and adults reading along with them - to look up at the sky and take an interest in the weather around them. Weather is something that affects us all and with the global impacts of climate change and extreme weather, there has never been a more important time to understand what is happening in our planet’s atmosphere.”
Katie Haworth added:
‘We are so excited to have Liam Dutton’s exploration of the weather coming out on Big Picture Press. As well as being a household name, Liam is a champion for the science behind the weather and honest weather reporting. At a time when the effects of the weather are constantly being discussed in the media, it seems vital to have a children’s book that offers accessible, factual and fascinating explanations of how our planet’s weather systems work.’
