Jeanne, we cannot thank you enough! We just LOVE having you in school I really didn’t want you to go! All of the staff and children get so much from your visits and we were all mesmerised during your assembly. I know the Year 5 and 6 staff and children were blown away by your workshops too!

Thanks 😊 so much!

Dear Jeanne, 

Thank you so much for coming to Bookfeast last week.  Your sessions were great, and perfect for the age group. It’s gratifying to think there are lots of sequinned, goggly-eyed Slodges out there busy being bookmarks for Oxfordshire’s 5 year olds.

Dear Jeanne,

Thank you SO MUCH for the best presentation ever. AND for coming out for an afternoon’s work when you were feeling a bit peaky. I am eternally grateful. You mesmerised all of us.

Dear Jeanne,

I was at the Golden Egg Academy workshop on Saturday and I thought your talk was fabulous. So interesting, so inspiring, and what great stories you have to tell! I’ve been in a bit of a creative hole of late and listening to you gave me the kick up the bum I needed to get myself out of it.

Thanks again.

Everyone loved the workshops that you did. They were so enjoyable & you really inspired children & staff alike.

Hi Jeanne,

It was lovely to see you again and we loved your event.  I do hope you will return to Derby Book Festival again! I'm sure you have found plenty of new fans.
