“I just wanted to say that I was so inspired by your talk at the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Conference in April, that I bought the Wallbook of Sport as soon as it was published.  At school one of the teachers introduced it to the children using a sports bag containing a few tactile objects, which they tried to relate to the facts.  They loved the book, going on to find out more and more for themselves and thoroughly enjoying doing so. They were very excited to hear there was one another Wallbook about the history of the world, which I know has now arrived in the school library ready for the new school year! Thank you!” Shirley Imlach, Broke Hall Primary School, Ipswich

Feedback from teachers and parents and the Oxford Literary Festival, 2014

My 8 year old son has just returned home from hearing Christopher speak in Bath today. When I asked him if it was interesting his reply was “I can’t tell you how interesting as I haven’t a word that can describe it, but it was beyond awesome!”
Thank you – Cheryl

“Your brilliant What On Earth talk was without doubt the hit of the weekend” Jo Williamns, Organiser for the Federation of Children’s Books Groups Conference, April 2012

Chris: Thank you for a great evening. It went down a storm!, John Baugh, Headmaster, The Dragon School, Oxford

“The school has been humming with chatter about your superb and wonderfully interactive talks and the wallbooks are in constant use. The library tables have wallbooks spread all over them as the children pore over the details and discuss the information – you’ve had an enormously positive impact on them.”  
Nelia Beyers, Librarian, Newton Prep, Battersea, London. January 2012.
