“Lou Kuenzler’s author visit was an inspiration to all who heard her. Her year group workshops were very well adapted to focus on key writing skills for each age group. Lou was masterful in her interaction, skilfully getting the children to hone up their answers to improve their ideas within minutes. It was a pleasure to see how she drew out so much innate creativity from our children.”
Reading Recovery Teacher – Kent
“We set Lou a hard task, working across 6 different classes and with each Year group as a whole, not easy even for experienced teachers, but she coped brilliantly. The buzz of excitement she left behind for writing was palpable, with many children snatching precious minutes after breaks to carry on with their stories. She did an amazing job and I would highly recommend her to other schools – you won’t be disappointed!”
Year 5 teacher, Cambridge
“Girls and boys will love her visits, she involves the children in her talks and has them all captivated. Its noisy though, so beware the excitement level can be high! I can’t recommend her highly enough and the feedback from children and teachers has been very complimentary.”
“Lou’s writing is full of humour and she reads like a true performer. Having had her visit my school for an author visit, I can promise you she is the perfect person to excite children about reading and rhyming and shrinking to the size of a fish finger.”

“Lou is fantastic with the kids – engaging and funny – and she pitches her events at exactly the right level so that they are enjoyable but also thought-provoking and rewarding. She handles the children brilliantly, making them laugh but also encouraging them to think about things like description, character and plot (they all love her books, which helps). They really do hang on her every word, which is lovely to see.”
“Lou has visited us many times. Her sessions are always fun, lively and energetic. The children come away inspired!”
Primary Head, London NW3.
“Dear Lou – Many many thanks for your superb visit – it was such a success and went down brilliantly with all the children and staff who heard you. We were very impressed how you successfully delivered dynamic and absorbing programmes to our classes, ranging from Y3 to 9, and all tailor made to suit their ages. Comments included: “exciting” and “engaging” …. Y6 thought the readings were “inspiring” and made them excited about their creative writing. A truly worthwhile event!”
