“Thank you so much for visiting us Jason! The children (and staff) were hanging on every word of your assembly and then roaring with laughter! Your writing style has engaged many reluctant readers into picking up books again for fun – which is priceless in itself!”
Stuart Wynn, Vice Principal, Green Lane Primary Academy, Garforth


“Jason arrived today and totally swept our pupils away. He is as his books: enthusiastic and completely committed to making the reading experience as enjoyable as possible.”

“If you haven't seen Jason live you MUST, I was crying with laughter as were many others.”

“Thank you so much for coming in on Friday. The class sessions were brilliant and engaging and the children are very much looking forward to finishing their superhero work. We look forward to seeing you in school again soon.”
Laura Darley, KS2 Leader, Parklands Primary School, Leeds


“Dear Jason, You were amazing, so much energy and whizz, it was great to see the faces of people watching what was going on. I really thank you for giving us your time, it is so important to make the link for people between the books that they see on the shelves and the amazing people that write them. You were inspirational and have shown young children in Coventry what it is possible for them to achieve.”
Sorrelle Clements, Service Development Manager, Libraries and Information Services, Coventry City Council
