Book takes aim at bullies

Saanich author releases the second book in her children’s series Pugnacioius

Ariane Weathers has just released the second book in her children’s series, Pugnacious and the Bullies.

Ariane Weathers is a Saanich author who is releasing the second book in her children’s series Pugnacioius.

Pugnacious and the Bullies is a heart-warming tale of friendship, confronting adversities, and forgiveness.

“My goal, when I started this book last year, was to bring awareness to children at a young age because that’s when bullying can start, even before the child realizes that they are being bullied or that they are a bully,” said Weathers.

“This cause is important to me as I was bullied for six years throughout my childhood and the effects stayed with me for many, many years.”

Weathers is releasing Pugnacious and the Bullies to coincide with anti-bullying month here in B.C. and across the country, with $1 from the sale of each book in February going towards the Pink Shirt Day anti-bullying campaign.

“My hope is that Pugnacious and the Bullies will encourage children to find an alternative to bullying and learn the importance of being kind to others,” she said.

Weathers will be making three appearances at St. Patrick Elementary School this month, reading the book to students in grades 1, 3 and 4, as well as taking part in a book signing event in Vancouver.

The book sells for $8 and can also be purchased online at www.arianeweathers.wix.com/author.
