I loved the story. It kept my interest until the very end. I can't wait for the next one to come out. The school visit was great. The kids were well entertained. The large snake he brought had the kids talking and dreaming on what they could do for several weeks after the visit. We all loved the pictures he shared. The interaction Mr. Knapp had with the kids was perfect. There was a long list of students waiting to read the book after his visit.
Jefferson’s presentation was very entertaining. He has great rapport with kids but the adults loved it as well. His humor kept our attention and his passion about his writing left us wanting more. The kids were so excited to read the book after his presentation that I plan on having multiple copies in the library!
Jefferson Knapp's author presentation was awesome. Our students were spellbound as soon as they walked into the library and saw Farangis (25 foot replica of a python). I began reading The Brave Journey to my students about a month before Mr. Knapp arrived. We only read to Chapter Six. My students could not wait to hear about the end of the book. Jefferson did not give away the ending; instead, he shared how his book came to life. This was one of the best author visits we have had at our school. When Mr. Knapp left, students were asking to be put on the reserve list for his book. They are looking forward to finishing the series The Kingdom at the End of the Driveway. Thank you, Jefferson Knapp, for inspiring our students to want to pick up a book and read.
