On Demand

Join us as we connect with authors of the Worst Week Ever series Matt Cosgrove and Eva Amores to talk media literacy! Students will explore examples of media literacy featured in Matt and Eva’s books.


Students will have the opportunity to hear Matt and Eva talk about writing and illustrating the Worst Week Ever series. They will take a closer look at and critically reflect on examples of advertising, social media and news from their latest book in the series Thursday.  Students will also have an opportunity draw a campaign poster for Justin Chase, download the template via the MoAD Learning website.


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Museum of Australian Democracy


Eva Amores has worked for the Sydney Opera House and the ABC. She was born in The Philippines and moved to Australia in high school. She likes shoes, travelling and more shoes.

Matt Cosgrove is the best-selling author/illustrator of Macca the Alpaca with over a million books in print worldwide. He was born and raised in Western Sydney. He likes chocolate, avoiding social interactions and more chocolate.

Eva and Matt met when they were randomly placed together for a group assignment at University twenty-five years ago and they’ve been collaborating ever since but Worst Week Ever is their first book series together. Created during lockdown after the pandemic turned their working lives upside down, the hilarious 7 part series about one kid having the worst week of his life has been the subject of fierce bidding wars amongst overseas publishers and is being rolled out across the globe in over 30 territories and languages (so far!)

Oh, and did we mention they have lots of great activity sheets and printables available on Matt’s website!
