"A huge thank you to Adam. The boys adored the event, the teachers were very enthusiastic as well and several have commented to me how much they enjoyed it. The boys have been hilarious about the book - someone found the page 120 reference to 'penis and vaginas' so there has been much smirking and giggling about that - but everyone is absolutely hooked and reading it non-stop.
Here are some quotes from the librarians: (bona fide, genuine)
“I absolutely loved this book – it’s the best book I’ve ever read” Josh
“A really special moving book – can’t wait to meet the author” Oliver
“Wow – a really powerful story, I couldn’t put it down” Doahn
"The workshop lead by Adam Baron was truly inspirational as it gave the students the chance to create their own story and use their own imagination. He used a conventional story of Goldilocks and turned it into a creative unpredictable masterpiece which left the students in stitches! The workshop had a big impact on the students as it gave them a chance to learn about creative writing techniques."
Librarian at Judge Meadow Community College in Leicester
"Adam headlined our Leiciester City Readathon event on 3rd October - and ran a 2hr session including a story-writing workshop for 250 children (years 6, 7 and 8) at Leicester Racecourse and a similar session at Judge Meadow Community College for years 7 and 8. It was a brilliantly engaging session that got them enthused about reading and writing stories."

I used to perform comedy so am used to providing fun, dynamic workshops that really educate young people about the basic elements of storytelling. My workshops will inspire young people to create their own, successful narratives. For ten years I have been MA Course Director at Kingston University where I have tutored many students who have gone on to be successful authors.
