What the Papers Said......Find out for yourself!

“Children take off their shoes and gather on the silk to be transported into a land of hobgoblins and genies, Old Nan or Green-fingered Jenny. This group were soon spirited away.”

Cutting from Alton Gazette and Advertiser (496k )

“Accompanying his words with the haunting lilt of wooden pipes, there was at one point a distinct resemblance to Hamelin’s Pied Piper.”

Cutting From Hampshire Chronicle (198k )

“Many of Michael’s tales may have their roots obscured by the mists of time but they are very relevant to the modern day.”

Southern Evening Echo
