School Bookings

Ross is a former children’s entertainer and is skilled at orchestrating a large crowd of children, maintaining firm order through the chaos and noise to ensure that every child is engaged and entertained.

Ross’s book talks are a funny and fresh way of expanding children’s knowledge of and enthusiasm for writing.

Ross is a former children’s entertainer and is skilled at orchestrating a large crowd of children, maintaining firm order through the chaos and noise to ensure that every child is engaged and entertained.

There are short readings from his books (he is very good at reading aloud!), plus a memory game straight from Grandpa Byron in Time Travelling With A Hamster.  There’s a riotous  “write-a-story-in-under-five-minutes” challenge (no writing materials required!) and at least one book-themed magic trick.

Most importantly, these sessions are not dry lectures, but lively, interactive experiences from which the children will emerge enthused and enthralled.

Ross has also appeared at literary events and festivals, including Hay-on-Wye and Cheltenham.

Ross’s book talks are handled by the publisher, HarperCollins, and by the esteemed agency, Authors Aloud.
