Based on the Australian Curriculum: English's Literature strand and sequence, the book presents comprehensive criteria tables, suggests guided discussion questions and outlines possible teaching tasks. While based on the Literature strand, the Language strand receives in-depth attention through a focus on how literary language constructs meaning and how literary texts provide models for creating dialogue, description and vocabulary building, with a glossary on figurative language. Also features:
•A range of literary text types - realism, fantasy, sci-fi, humour, mystery and innovative forms of postmodern picture books, graphic novels and manga
•A visual grammar for reading images in picture books
