"Can fully recommend Emma Rosen Both as an author and a visitor to schools. She was kind enough to come to school for our careers week today and talked about her writing and her work on marine biology. She was amazing with the kids and really adaptable. If anybody in a local school wants an author visit I would massively recommend her." Teacher, Mundella Primary School, Folkestone.

"The children loved the session - the story, the background and the tactile shells." - Early Years teacher, Sandown School, Deal.

"Emma is very engaging and captures the children's imaginations." Teaching Assistant, Green Park CP School, Dover.

"Great to see 'real' authors edit" KS2 teacher, St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Deal.
