Author Visit - Tristan Bancks


The Year 6's had the privilege of meeting an amazing Australian author by the name of Tristan Bancks. He writes humorous and very entertaining children’s books, some of his most popular being ones that are part of the "My Life" series. Tristan told us that he often gets his inspiration for each story from experiences he has had in his life. He then exaggerates parts of it to make it more entertaining. We loved hearing about what Tristan has done for a living up until this point, the places he has visited and the books he has written. Tristan Bancks lastly told us the five most important things that he thinks are needed to write a great story.  Some of us were even lucky enough to purchase some of his books, which he happily autographed.  Tristan Bancks is a very unique and talented man, who inspired us to be the best writers we can be!
