Feedback From Events


“Just wanted to say a huge thank-you for your visit to our WW1 Centenary day last Friday. It was a fabulous day, and your presentations fitted perfectly with the whole ethos of the day. Students were fascinated and moved by the stories you told, and have been talking about it since. As well as the 80 books we sold on the day (wish I had ordered more), we have loaned out all 20 copies of Soldier Dog in the library catalogue – and we have a waiting list! All staff who were supervising the presentation were also very impressed. Believe you me, our year 8s can be a tough crowd, but you kept them enthralled for the whole hour.”

Ms Sally Perkins, Beauchamps High School

“Sam Angus came to our school to introduce her brilliant book ‘Soldier Dog’. The whole event was fantastic and successfully brought together different curriculum areas. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of how messenger dogs were trained and used during World War 1 and she shared this knowledge in an accessible and captivating way to an audience of 250 pupils aged between 10 and 13. Both during and after the talk the students were given plenty of opportunities to ask Sam any questions and to have their books signed.” 

King Charles School, Kidderminster

“I just wanted to thank you so much for coming in today, we all so enjoyed your talk and the wonderful photos too! Absolutely fascinating stuff, I am sure your book will do amazingly well. We sold a lot of books, and already have a list of boys wanting to buy the book tomorrow, so the whole event was a great success!”

Mrs Anne-Marie Williams Librarian and Administrator, Wetherby Preparatory School
