"Paige Turner was great fun and pitched the story session just right for the audience, some of whom were younger than the age range advertised for the event. There was a good mix of stories, songs and props. I would recommend Paige for people looking for a storyteller who communicates well with children"
Mike Treacy, Reading and Literacy Manager, Kingston Libraries
