School Workshops

Book Paul & over 150 authors and illustrators

Special programs can be arranged to have students work with Paul and gain a wealth of knowledge.

Paul visited our Library Service in May 2004. He single-handedly captivated 298 grade 5 and 6 kids in nine groups over two days. They loved his workshops and were enthusiastic participants. We moved him to five different locations some more opulent than others, he handled this all with good grace and courtesy to all children, teachers and library staff. We think Paul is great!
