Original Windy series of books
Some copies of our books and additional Windy products are available at buyolympia.com.
The original series of books were: Windy, Sunny, Snowy & Chinook and Foggy, published by Simply Read Books Each book was hardcover with a glossy dust jacket — activities related to the books can be found inside the dust jacket. Sunny and Snowy & Chinook were packaged with original music.
Printed in Italy.
Because the books are hard to find (and new copies can fetch over a hundred dollars,incredibly), we are publishing the books on issuu.com.
“Playfully ingenius ... The volume’s compact size lends the action intimacy, drama and a magical sense of verite.” — PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY
“So charming I gasped when I saw it... My new favourite kids book.” — Keri Smith, WISH JAR TALES
“If you haven’t see Windy, Sunny, and Snowy children’s books by Canadian duo Robin Mitchell and Judith Steedman you are in for a treat....” — SELVEDGE
“Windy debuts a new series... specifically designed for pre-readers and early readers ages 3 to 7... a highly recommended and entertaining read.” — MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS
“Mitchell and Steedman used their own handmade characters and sets to create a final product both unique and pleasurably nostalgic.” — HOW MAGAZINE
“The staged photographs (dioramas really) demonstrate how quality kids’ books needn’t be dumbed-down; this is a work of art. The Story couldn’t be more simple—Windy loses her kite and finds it again—but it has all the elemental charm of a Winnie the Pooh vignette. As a bonus, the dust jacket has instructions for kite-building printed on the reverse.” — John Burns, THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT
“For younger readers I can’t think of a better choice than Sunny ... a follow-up to last year’s Windy. It, too, features the adorable little wooden bobble-headed puppets engaged in whimsical tableaux. Sunny is all about making music and having a hootenanny of a good time.” — VANCOUVER SUN
