Zoran Vakula and Nik Titanik Create Picture Book for Young Meteorologists

As Morski writes, following “Vjetropirasta”, the first meteorological picture book in the series “Vremenaste price”, in which the young boy Val teaches the readers about the wind – Zoran Vakula and Nik Titanik have continued their collaboration “Oblača-stom” – in which Vedrana talks about clouds.

Of course, meteorologist Zoran Vakula writes here as well, and cartoonist and illustrator Nik Titanik draws the images. The picture book is intended primarily for the older kindergarten age group and those attending the lower grades of primary school, but as with “Vjetropirasta” – those of all ages will more than likely find flipping through these pages charming.

Vedrana helps find the answers to common questions such as: “What are clouds? How and where do they originate? How many are there and what shapes do they come in? Which are the lowest clouds and which are the highest ones? What do they produce, and how? Can they be touched? When and how can we photograph them?” and many other questions that a child will often ask when looking up at the sky.

In addition to learning a lot, the goal of the picture book is to encourage almost the youngest among us to understand nature and its laws, and to interest them in meteorology and clarify some basic meteorological concepts to make it easier for them to understand everyday meteorological information and the process of climate change.

The publisher of the picture book is Nik Titanik Studio d.o.o., the first and only Croatian studio specialising in the production of caricatures, illustrations, comics and picture books.
