The whole family will enjoy this wonderful, interactive presentation for young children (ages 4-9) hosted by two passionate educators; New York Times bestselling author and Animal Planet host, Bradley Trevor Greive AM, and acclaimed nature writer and children’s author, Nicole Gill.

Children are encouraged to come dressed as their favourite animal – with great prizes awarded for the best costumes.

Nicole will read an excerpt from her new book, Animal Eco-Warriors, and BTG will present a selection of stunning images of tiny yet truly remarkable insects that have inspired his latest book.

In order to demonstrate the connection between the wonders of the natural world and positive creative expression, Nicole and BTG will talk briefly about their favourite animals and their favourite books; and the audience will join in as well.

BTG, Australia’s highest selling author, will explain the three biggest secrets to better writing (at any age) with two fun, creative writing exercises that don’t actually involve much writing at all; instead kids will draw pictures (art supplies will be provided) and help create a new song about Tasmanian wildlife.

Everything in this dynamic and inspiring presentation is designed to encourage tiny hands and growing brains that they are capable of big ideas. Kids and parents should all come along prepared to laugh, sing, draw, write and be happily astonished!


Bradley Trevor Greive, AM is a best-selling Tasmanian author and the world’s highest selling humorist. His 20+ books include the hugely successful The Blue Day Book, and recent releases Penguin Bloom—The Odd Little Bird Who Saved a Family, and In Praise Of Idleness—A Timeless Essay.
**BTG has generously donated his time for this event – All ticket sales will go to support the Tasmanian Writers Centre and the Wildcare Tasmania Nature Writing Prize.
