'If students can't learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they learn' (Ignacio Estrada, via Tomlinson)

Meet the Author: Carole Wilkinson

Posted by Lisa Hill on May 29, 2008

Tonight I went to PD at Black Dog Books in Fitzroy.  Although they probably don’t know it, BDB are my students’ favourite book publishers, producing the Little Lunch series, the Diva series,  The Aussie A-Z (which I like to send overseas when we do the IASL Bookmark project in term 3), Maxx Rumble, the Antarctica books by Dr Mark Norman, the Legends series, and of course, the brilliant Dragonkeeper Trilogy by Carole Wilkinson.  Kate Story talked about livening up the literature program, but the highlight of the night was Carole’s slideshow showcasing her research about dragons large and small,  ancient and modern,  good ones and bad.  Perhaps Carole’s interest in dragons is bordering on an obsession, but she seems refreshingly normal in spite of it and I love hearing her talk about them.  I think she’s the best children’s writer working in Australia today.
