Sarah Sawler – Be Prepared: The Frankie MacDonald Guide to Life, the Weather, and Everything

Ever wonder where clouds come from? Or how meteorologists predict the weather? This brand new book, starring Nova Scotia’s favourite weather reporter, Frankie MacDonald, and written by author Sarah Sawler, shares stories from Frankie’s early years, along with facts about all things sunny, rainy, snowy, and stormy. Filled with pictures, graphics, and advice from Frankie himself, this book has everything you need to Be Prepared!

When she’s not writing books, she’s working as a publicist for graphic novel publisher Conundrum Press, reviewing children’s literature, and writing web content for tech companies. She lives in Saint Margaret’s Bay with her partner, two kids, one cat, one dog, and one bearded dragon.

Sarah Sawler is the award-winning author of three books: 100 Things You Don’t Know About Nova Scotia, 100 Things You Don’t Know About Atlantic Canada – For Kids, and the Moonbeam Spirit Award-winning Be Prepared: The Frankie MacDonald Guide to Life, the Weather, and Everything (written with Frankie MacDonald).
