As an author doing school visits, it’s difficult sometimes to judge how a session has been received. So it’s always lovely to receive feedback from the students. I love all these responses, but I’m particularly fond of this first one: ‘We sang and danced with Claire Saxby’.

It’s true. We did. Sing and dance that is. It was wonderful.


I quite like my new blonde-haired, blue-eyed look here too.

It’s also true that I did display my drawing skills. I can report that these renderings of Emu are much more skilled than mine was. They were very encouraging too, that my drawing was a ‘good try’. Can’t ask much more than that.
