The notoriously changeable weather in New Zealand is the subject of a newly published book, the first by local author Melisa Sinclair.
Melisa is no stranger to children's literature, having worked in a children's library as well as writing reviews of children's books.
She has been interested in writing from a young age, but says her main credentials for becoming a children's author are simply that she used to be a child, and remembers clearly what used to appeal to her when being read to by her parents.
Weather or Not has colourful illustrations - also by Melisa - and simple text.
