“Kindled our children’s interest in reading” (Brockhurst & Marlston House Preparatory Schools, Hermitage).

  “Booking Ed Wicke to come to our school was one of the best decisions I have made as English Co-ordinator.” (Fair Oak Juniors, Eastleigh) 

 “The perfect way to engage reluctant readers.” (Hillside School, Reading)

“The whole visit was a brilliant experience for our school.” (Westfields Juniors, Yateley)

  “A literary experience not to be missed.” (Robert Sandilands, Newbury)

I am a storyteller (a member of the Society for Storytelling) and author of thirteen children’s books for 8-12 year olds.  I've been telling stories in schools for more than twenty years - in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the USA.  I visit around thirty schools each year and perform at festivals.

You will see from my references that my visits can provide a useful boost to a school’s literacy programme, and are particularly helpful for boys and reluctant readers.
