Preferred audience: years 3-7
Anna has made her name as a versatile writer and illustrator of fiction, travel and historical books. Her Viking Magic series earned her fans throughout the world. Her latest children’s book, The Family with Two Front Doors, is based on her grandmother’s childhood in Poland in the 1920s – a heart-warming Jewish story that is not a holocaust story.
Anna inspires students with her enthusiasm. Hear the incredible stories behind the four-year research quest for her latest book. See drafts, editing samples and illustrating demonstrations. Taste food from the story. Learn how to braid ‘challah’ bread or how to write your own chapter.
Teachers’ notes are available for the book.
