Author Nick Falk and illustrator Tony Flowers are coming to Brisbane for one show only and it is at the St Aidan’s Junior School Library…because our library rocks (just joking. No not really joking…our library is cool). FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Saturday, 6 August 2016 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (AEST)

St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School – Junior School Library 11 Ruthven Street, Corinda

Nick and Tony will discuss dinosaurs, dragons and the smelliest people through history. They will introduce you to so some-splittingly funny poetry and some super interesting (and slightly ridiculous) history. Quality writing, mind blowing illustrations and lots of laughter PLUS afternoon tea, prizes, book buying and book signing. Your Saturday afternoon is sorted.

This event is aimed at male and female readers (and reluctant readers) aged 5-11ish. Tony and Nick engage readers and non-readers alike with their unique brand of absurd and funny books, but the depth in their work should never be underestimated. Between creating artwork, school visits and illustration jobs, Tony Flowers is also currently deep in reading, research and interviews for his PhD looking at theories of visual literacy and how illustrators encode visual literary elements in their work.

Nick and Tony are the team that brought us the ‘Saurus Street’ series (junior primary), the ‘Samurai Vs Ninja’ series (lower – middle/upper primary, Japan-o-philes, lovers of ‘Monkey Magic’ and dads who think they are ninjas), the ‘Billy is a Dragon’ series (junior primary) and ‘How to Stop An Alien Invasion Using Shakespeare’ (middle/upper primary). Their new history series is perfect for young readers who love ‘Horrible Histories’.
