Testimonials from clients, audiences, teachers and parents/carers

“Wendy was absolutely fantastic to work with from beginning to end. She was the key to bringing The Book of Beasts to life at its book launch at Ottie and the Bea Bookshop. Wendy’s magical storytelling provided an immersive and fun experience for children and adults alike. She effortlessly took our mythical creatures off the page, and into the imaginations of us all. The children were so excited to crack the Sphinx riddle and scare away a Chinese dragon – all in a days work! It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Wendy, we cannot thank her enough for sprinkling her storytelling magic on The Book of Beasts.” – Alara Delfosse, Michael O’Mara Books
