Story Giant Project

 

Hi, I'm the co-ordinator of the Story Giants and I thought I'd come online and report how things are going....

Dominic created a 'bang' on the start line with his storytelling at the launch event.  One anonymous teacher remarked that Dominic is the right man for the job because he's not outlandish and weird like some storytellers who can scare children.  At the same time, she explained, he has personality and can captivate adults and children.   There's a compliment for you Dominic if you happen to read this...  you're not weird!
