Episode #18: Fiona Katauskas on The Amazing True Story of How Babies Are Made

October 29, 2019

In this episode, we interview Fiona Katauskas.

Fiona is a cartoonist, author and illustrator. She is the artist behind The Amazing True Story of How Babies are Made, a popular book that has been animated into a three-part series for families and schools. 

Fiona has created a funny, accurate and inclusive narrative as a way to guide a conversation about how babies are made. Family Planning Victoria have endorsed the resource and we have seen first hand how classrooms of students react to its humour and honesty in such a positive way. In this episode we talk about the creative process of writing and animating this story and the reactions it has had. 

The Amazing True Story of How Babies Are Made is available in bookshops, and at Kmart. Online bookstore here. The animated series in 3 parts has it’s own webpage amazingbabies.tv.  This is where to find the animations,  extra family resources and teacher toolkit.
