It was with pleasure that we welcomed Phil through the Virtual Author Visit last week. The process was successful and Phil had the children eating out of his hands! He answered many questions and spoke passionately about his writing. The kids were engaged and enthused. Thank you so much for the opportunity. We look forward to negotiating Phil's presence in person at our 2020 Writers Festival.

Thank you for organising Phil Kettle for us. He was another success story and one of his strengths is that he is an assured writer and the children appreciated that it is his real occupation and has been for years. His books are well known to our students. Phil was prepared to be easy going and also fitted in a visit to a year 5 class which was not on his program. I really appreciate this flexibility.

Both authors were great for their target age groups (Phil Kettle and James Roy). Very easy to deal with – no difficult request and amiable to students and staff.
Would certainly recommend them.
Here are some of the student’s comments:
“I was inspired to write more stories and read more books” (Moya 3B)
“It was inspiring!” Lewis 3B

Book Week 2012 was a great success here at St Augustine's. Phil Kettle was good, especially for the boys and I think they really enjoyed the sessions. Thank you Helen once again for helping me with great author choices.
