(I) completed the evaluation form and the event with Matteo was fabulous. He was the perfect choice for our 5th Birthday celebrations, worked in really well and kept our large crowd entertained. A great morning and it was terrific having someone a bit different to provide the storytelling element.

I just want say Matteo was fantastic. The children loved his stories and went back to their classrooms and produced some of their own. He was a big hit with the children and teachers alike.

—S. Turner, Mill Park Primary School, May 2017

He was fantastic and I have had such positive feedback from the parents and grandparents in attendance.
