Publisher Description

Join Abigail on a rainy-day adventure to explore the marvellous movement of water around the Earth.

Abigail is a curious little girl. She likes to discover the answers to really BIG questions. One rainy morning, she thinks of a question that's SO BIG she can't concentrate on anything else until she knows the answer. "Mummy," she asks, "how did the water get in the clouds?" To discover the answer, Mummy invites Abigail on an exciting adventure with a tiny drop of lake water. Together they fly up into the sky to explore the marvellous movement of water around the Earth. By dinner time, Abigail has thought of another big question . . .

Ideal for any child who loves to ask questions, Abigail and the Restless Raindrop is an exquisitely illustrated and beautiful bedtime story doubling as an introduction to the hydrologic (water) cycle.

Author Biography

Matthew Cunningham is a passionate and dedicated historian with a Doctor of Philosophy (History) from Victoria University of Wellington. He has published oral histories, peer-reviewed articles, journalistic and encyclopedic pieces, and Waitangi Tribunal research commissions. He lives in Porirua, New Zealand, and works as a researcher. He is active on Facebook and is a member of a number of parent groups, including several for gifted children. Abigail and the Birth of the Sun (Puffin 2019) was his first published children's book.

Sarah Wilkins was born in Lower Hutt. The middle child of seven, she dreamt of becoming a solo explorer. Dreaming and drawing, which she loved, go together, so she became an illustrator instead. Sarah works for clients all around the globe and has won many awards for her work. She lives in Wellington, New Zealand, and sometimes in Paris, France, and still likes to explore everything in between.
