“Kitty was a charmingly professional presenter. She had my Year 1’s on task learning about character development and narrative structures in no time. She has a wonderful way of encouraging young writers and managing each child on their journey to becoming a unique writer. Even though we met remotely her energy made us all feel like we were in the classroom again. It was a pleasure to work with her.”
“We were thrilled to have Kitty visit us at Moerlina during Book Week. The children loved listening to her captivating storytelling as she read from her newest book, with much laughter throughout. Afterwards, Kitty shared her insights into becoming an author and the processes behind writing a book for publication. The students were highly engaged and Kitty was responsive in answering their many questions. A wonderful experience all round!”
