A short film about non-fiction

Nibweb member Stewart Ross is keen to encourage young readers (well, readers of any age) to understand that that there is far more to books than fiction. He’s made a short film about non-fiction (a term he doesn’t much like, incidentally), which he explains he made ‘with my daughter Ellie, in response to a request from Zoe Toft for material relating to Non-fiction November. (See  – it’s an initiative from The Federation of Children’s Book Groups.) Articles are all very well but they are generally read only by the converted. I wanted to have a go at proselytizing, offering a simple, easily accessible message to agnostics and atheists as well as confirmed enthusiasts for children’s non-fiction.’ The film can be seen at:
