Story Talks with Mat Larkin

State Library Victoria

Introducing Story Talks! Children's author, Mat Larkin introduces us to his weird and wild characters and teaches us how to generate creative ideas.

Mat and Tess are joined by Auslan interpreter, Susan.

Mat talks about how his childhood inspired his book, and how cue cards and drawing maps help him to keep track of the complex worlds he invents (but he still gets lost sometimes).

There is also an activity to take part in: Two Real, One Fake- to get the ideas going.
