 Paul has made me want to read more books.
I liked how he took the time to really answer our questions.

When Paul read the story, I liked the voices he used for the characters. It really made me laugh.

He was really fun and creative.

Year 5 Children, Filton Avenue Primary School Bristol


The children loved it, thank you so much!

Miss Gibson, Warren Primary Academy Nottingham


You made lots of children smile today!

Miss Fletcher Brown, Vineyard School Richmond


The children really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it!

It was really fun! Absolutely engaging!

 Miss Crome, St Ignatius Primary School Tottenham


It was a really successful workshop and gave the students

a great insight into the creative process but also showed that everyone has the potential to tell a great story.

 Mr Ferrigan, Haringey Learning Partnership
