Port Fairy's long winter inspired the second book from Port Fairy's Ganga Powell and Eileen Curd.
The two women have released The Day the Sun Slept In, a follow up to their popular children's book Do Mutton Birds Have Maps?
"A cold, wet and blustery morning this past long-drawn-out Port Fairy winter inspired it," Mrs Powell said.
The rhyming book has received praise, with Blarney Books posting about it on its Facebook page.
"The Day the Sun Slept In is (Ganga's) second collaboration with local artist Eileen Curd, who is well-known for her delightfully whimsical illustrations," the post states.
"It's a bright and joyful rhyming story about what would happen if the sun ever decided to hit the snooze button. So much talent in one small town."
Mrs Powell said the two women had plans for more books in the future.
"Collaborating with Eileen is such fun - her art work brings mere words to life," she said.
"We might try to work on one before next Christmas."
The book is available to buy at Collins Booksellers, Blarney Books in Port Fairy, Ironbird Bookshop, the Port Fairy Newsagency and YniqueArt Gallery in Toolong.
