"How can a young reader not pause to pick up any of the It's True!nonfiction series? They have what must surely be the funkiest, attention-grapping titles on any bookshelf loads of utterly fascinating information and trivia delivered in a most engaging flip style. Great fun yet authoritatively researched Cover to cover, they are simply irresistible."

Meredith Costain rocked through the 1980s playing piano and synth in blues and cover bands in grungy inner-city Melbourne pubs. Though music is still a vital part of her life, she has been a prose writer since the 1990s. As well as writing her own books, Meredith has reviewed kids' books, edited a kids' magazine and taught in a professional writing course. Illustrator Craig Smith has illustrated over 300 books in a 30-year career. He was once a rust scraper on the Sydney Harbour Bridge but is now one of Australia's most popular illustrators with a style that is energetic, individual, carefully observed and full of life and humour. His witty, humorous artwork is enormously popular with children combining a wonderful sense of the absurd with a fine eye for detail.
