Gattaldo as Zorro

That's me on the far left in my Zorro costume on my sister's birthday

It's important to know who's behind a website so I thought I'd introduce myself.

My name is Gattaldo

Book me

It's possible to book the following sessions with author and illustrator - Gattaldo.

Monkey selfie

True or False?

Presentation | Ages - 7 to 10 | Time 45mins

Media literacy plays an important part in children's education. Gattaldo's presentation asks children to question the information presented to them in the media and equips them with some of the tools to do that.

The presentation starts with a fun game and familiarises children with the various type of deceptions they might encounter and what they can do to recognise them.

Gattaldo will also sign children's copies of 'Fearless, The Story of Daphne Caruana Galizia'.

Sleeping Beauty

How to write a news report

Workshop | Ages - 7 to 10 | Time 1hr

A fun workshop in which children learn media-literacy through role play. Using drama strategies, Gattaldo uses a revised version of the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty as a tool.

Through asking questions, children learn how to respond to journalism in critical and creative ways.

If you are a teacher looking to improve your class media literacy in an interactive way, this workshop offers your class valuable insights and resources.

Children can win a signed copy of 'Fearless' in a follow-up competition.
