I am writing to warn you that there are a number of letters on their merry way to you. Year Three absolutely loved your visit here at Kelvin Grove, and we have talked about it almost every day since.

By far the best author student interaction I have viewed. Your presentations were spellbinding!

The children are still talking about your visit. Our school library is lending out all your books much more often and we have been asked when you will be coming again. Thanks so much for an amazing day.
