Isaac du Toit, born in 2004, is a New Zealand author with an interest in 18th century and 17th century British history. In 2016 du Toit co-authored A Children’s Guide to Splendour
with Megan du Toit, his mother. This was a guide to the artworks on display in the 2016-2017 Te Papa Tongarewa (Museum of New Zealand) exhibition European Splendour 1500-1800. A Children’s Guide to Splendour
was launched online in October 2016 and published in paperback in May 2019. Isaac du Toit's most recent guide is A Children's Guide to Lisa Walker
, a guide to the contemporary jewellery of Lisa Walker. This publication was produced in conjunction with the 2018 Te Papa Tongarewa exhibition I Want To Go To My Bedroom But I Can’t Be Bothered which showcased and charted Lisa Walker's 30 year exploration of what "jewellery" is or can be. In September 2018 du Toit published Greenwood Manor
, a fictional book inspired by portraits from Te Papa Tongarewa.
At age 12 du Toit co-founded the Pukerua Bay School Museum, New Zealand’s first ever museum founded and run by children. It is located at Pukerua Bay School in New Zealand.
