In this lesson we’ll join Claire and Jess to explore all things fact and information.
And we’ll learn about just some of the different kinds of non-fiction writing, and how these very clever writers craft their fascinating ‘fact books’.
Claire Saxby writes award-winning fiction, non-fiction and poetry for young people.
Her work aims to engage, entertain, inform and encourage curiosity.
Claire’s work is published in Australia and internationally.
Her picture book Iceberg, illustrated by fellow Series 2 creator Jess Rackyleft, won the 2022 CBCA Picture Book of the Year.
Jess is an author and illustrator living in Narrm (Melbourne, Australia).
Jess has published books locally and internationally, with more on the way.
Jess draws quite literally from a day job at Melbourne Museum, where he’s lucky enough to help design exhibitions and occasionally get lost in the basement.
