About the Illustrator:

Alisa Knatko was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. From her earliest childhood she was passionate about drawing. Having worked in academic art, digital design, advertising and even web design, Alisa found her ideal field in freelance illustration.

Her style is a mixed technique that includes balanced composition, graphic appeal of lines, expressive poses and minimalistic color scheme with random patterns and textures.

Alisa gets her inspiration from the beautiful city of Saint-Petersburg, her two little kids, ballet dancing and just sitting in a local coffee shop, contemplating people passing by.

Albie’s video review of Claire Malone Changes the World

This is a gorgeous and important book...

I love Claire Malone and all her spunk and feistiness to make a difference! She will be a fantastic role model to this generation of children who have lots of knowledge but need a little inspiration on how to advocate for change.

From a teaching perspective, this is the perfect book to kick off and engage children in a unit of persuasive writing in the junior primary years and I can't wait to use it in my classroom.
-- Maryanne, Primary School Teacher

Claire Malone Changes the World is a quaint story about a little girl with the world at her fingertips and a big social conscience in the making.

Nadia puts a new spin on children's understanding of global issues and their online access, applying her trademark insight on what makes young people tick.

This is a great match between author and illustrator and it would be lovely to see Claire Malone go on some more adventures of childhood empowerment.
--Theresa Smith Writes, Book Reviewer

Claire Malone Changes the World is Nadia's first picture book but I hope not her last, as it manages to be at once thoughtful, honest, and hopeful.

Claire Malone is a girl of our time, a child with global concerns, a sense of responsibility, and a passion for getting things done. The weight of injustice and messiness of life weigh heavily on her small shoulders, but with great nuance and a sense of moral courage, Claire discovers how to affect change right where she is.

Alisa Knatko's illustrations are a darling complement to Nadia's text and are so darn cute, bringing Claire's hopes and dreams to vibrant life on the page.
--Danielle Carey, Teacher and Book Blogger

Claire writes another letter but this time she involves her community in her campaign and for once her efforts are rewarded. This beautifully illustrated story celebrates young change-makers and light-heartedly questions the effect of modern technology on children while exploring what really makes a difference in their lives.
--Writing WA

Despite the fact that I am an adult reader, I felt empowered by Claire Malone Changes the World, a children's book that really packs a punch.

I look forward to celebrating the themes and achievements of Claire Malone, both in my school setting and with my own children.

We definitely need more texts of this calibre and subject matter out there in the children's picture book sphere, well done Nadia L King!
--Mrs B's Book Reviews

Drawing on themes of persistence, compassion, the effects of technology and the importance of childhood play, author, Nadia King, and illustrator, Alisa Knatko, brilliantly combine to highlight the savviness of one young girl determined to work for the greater good of the world.

With the uprise of social media and the internet, today's youth are becoming more and more encouraged to be the advocates for their own future. This is where youngsters like Claire Malone come along.
