“Thanks, Harriet. You are one of the best visitors that has ever visited our school. You made me think about my future and persuaded me to become an author like you.”
-  Phoebe

“I wanted to say a very big thank you for the excellent sessions you held last week. You created a palpable sense of buzz and excitement. Children, teachers and library staff alike were all buoyant about the sessions and reported how uplifting and enlivening it was to see the children instantly begin reading. This is testament to how well you carried across the intrigue, excitement and interest that stories provide. Your energy, enthusiasm and good humour made the day a real delight.”
-  Jake Hope, Lancashire Libraries.

“…a fantastic book – I would highly recommend it.”

“…I really enjoyed The Boy Who Fell Down Exit 43 and I just can’t wait for the next one.”
- Layla

“A huge thank you for visiting our school. You soon embraced the hearts and minds of our children. Your presentation of The Boy Who Fell Down Exit 43 captured all our imaginations and left us with a wealth of understanding about yourself and your love of writing. Please come again!”
- Neale Chesters (Deputy Head, Bishop Lonsdale Primary, Eccleshall)

“I thought that The Boy who Fell Down Exit 43 was a great book.  It’s really imaginative with emotional, sunny and heart warming parts.  The plot is great, the twists are gripping and it’s good for any age to read.  It was a real treat to have a famous author come to our school.”
- Anastasia

“This book is really, really good. I couldn’t put it down.  I was supposed to go to sleep but stayed up reading because I was at a really good part.  Some of the other years were jealous that we got to spend time with Harriet Goodwin as she gave a really good talk.”


“When we were told that an author was coming in to our school we were really excited as I had never met an author before.  She was really good and made the book come alive.  I couldn’t wait to start reading it and Harriet signed it for me as well.”

“I really enjoyed this book – especially the twists that kept you guessing.”
