From Jo di Guia of Victoria Park Bookshop and StoryHabit:
I have worked with Catherine for ten years and she is a wonderful author for schools. She is engaging and informed and inclusive (like her books!). Her events are well planned and she is well organised.
Children and adults alike enjoy her events. I cannot speak highly enough of her.
Jenny Berggren Librarian, Mossbourne School Hackney;
Mossbourne’s author event with Catherine Johnson was great! She enthralled our year 7s with her stories about being a writer and researching her book. She even got the pupils to reveal some of their most embarrassing moments. Several pupils have told me how much they enjoyed the event, something that was evident from the many questions, loud applause and long queue for autographs on Friday. Needless to say all her books are now borrowed from the school library!
