I just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your presentation. Both the boys and classroom teachers took away some great ideas. Would have loved to have you longer because you were inspiring.

The visit from Louise Park was wonderful. She was fabulous with the students and they were very engaged. I have subsequently had many requests from students to borrow her book.

—R. Woolven, Kew Primary School, October 2019.

The students and teacher absolutely loved Louise Park. They were thrilled to hear about her secret identities, how she writes her books and giving the students to create their own Zac Power adventure was amazing!

—B. Lavorato, William Stimson Public School, August 2017.

The students loved it!! They were very excited to be visited by an author who writes books they actually own and enjoy.

—M. Pendlebury, Norwest Christian College, June 2017.

Louise was a wonderful hit with the kids. Open and engaging, her sessions were a great success. She was very giving of herself, her adventures as a writer and publisher, and the stories she has shaped with such creative imagination. Children from Kindergarten through to Year 6 were delighted to bring her stories to life through sound effects, dress ups, and re-enactments. A passionate advocate for children’s literacy, Louise was the perfect ambassador for our Book Week celebrations.

—K. Lowe, Western Riverina Libraries Griffith, August 2015.

Louise was a wonderful visitor. The kids were engaged as she talked about her writing, she read one of her books, and they brainstormed a new story that they could then use in class to write their own. She gave great insight into her life as a writer, and as the kids were all familiar with her books, made it much more real to them.
