Book TV

I would love to see Australian children’s and young adult books gain a higher profile in TV and the media, encouraging reading and bringing the books to life for a wide audience. I think it’s really important for kids to see books brought to life in fun and exciting ways.

I’ve just been on a month-long tour with my new book The Fall and I thought I’d share two of the TV interviews, one with the hosts of Channel Seven’s The Daily Edition and one with Shane Crawford on Saturday morning show Kids’ WB (involving a fall from a very high diving tower).

Just click on the images to watch the clips.
