Author websites are a valuable and often underused resource for teachers’. They are valuable because they can be a treasure trove of anecdotal information to share with students about the author or illustrator and more often than not, will have all kinds of great activities and links that can help your students further explore in an author study, class novel study, or curiosity inspired by a beloved independent read.
We are on a mission to share with you some great author websites that we hope will be useful to you and your students, beginning with Author/illustrator – Andrew Joyner.

His books include The Terrible Plop, written by Ursula Dubosarsky (Shortlisted, CBCA awards and Prime Minister’s Literary Awards, 2010), and the Boris series.
