"In all honesty very rarely has poetry brought such smiles to the faces of the children I have taught. Hegley made them laugh, smile and positively embrace poetry."
"The children were really enthused with John Hegley."
“John Hegley’s children’s show ‘Animal Alphaboat’ was one of the ten best kids' shows at the Edinburgh Festival.”
