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.”

Alton Gazette and Advertiser

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

Hampshire Chronicle

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