    Dear Mr. Wright,
    I’ve been reading your blog and looking at your illustrations and drawings for the last two hours! I’m not an artist, still, just as an ESL teacher I’m simply fascinated by your work! I loved loved loved the illustrations of ‘The Floating World’.

    I’ve just watched your video from Storytelling Conference 2011 and cannot express my enthusiasm in words. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to join the conference in Istanbul as I live in Gaziantep and will be working at that time.Yet, I hope to see it online if can.

    If you happen to have the chance to come to Gaziantep, I’d be honoured to have you as my guest. Or, hope that I will be able to meet you somewhere in the world someday.

    Kind regards,

    Çiğdem Engin

      Dear Cigdem Engin Now, as I am a very normal human being you can imagine how I am feeling with all that praise for my work! Thank you so much for giving me so much pleasure. I am sorry you cant come to the second Storytelling Conference…but you will be able to see the videos again, I suppose.

      Have you made your summer holiday plans yet? You might like to come to Hungary to my first home based storytelling workshop (I have done them all around the world but never at home). It is in August. You could add on a few days to see this interesting country…and do teh workshop as well. It would be very nice to see you here…and you must keep on saying nice things to me!!!! I am attaching the advert. Let me know what you think.

      Andrew PS I am particularly happy you have looked at my pictures because almost nobody ever seems to go there! About 100 to 150 people come to the site everyday but nobody seems to be interested in the pictures. It is strange for me. Did you like the pictures on stones? PPS please pass on my advert to your friends…I have 3 people already but I need 10.

    Dear Mr. Wright,

    I have been planning to get to London by summer for work and living for a period of time but I have to sort getting a visa out first. It seems that this process will be hectic for me but I’ll let you know if can. As I told before, I’d love to meet you. And no worries, I’ll keep telling you nice things wherever I am 🙂

    ps. The link does not seem to be attached. If you resend it, I’ll be glad to pass it on to people I know.

    Kind Regards,

    Dear Mr Wright,

    You are just amazing! I cannot explain how much have you touched my life.

    I live in India, with my husband and two children. I am an artist, have done masters in english literature, and am partially homeschooling my two little ones, age 6 and 3. About a year back, I came across one of your books. It was “Story telling with children”. I was very very impressed and very happy. Then I brought a few of your other books. Your books have given me wings. I do not have to hunt for storytelling ideas every where. I find your ideas very easy to follow, execute and am in love with your illustrations and story telling techniques. Every night, at bedtime, I work on one of the ideas from your books and we all have a great time.

    Thank you so much for sharing your amazing treasure of knowledge with the world.

    With warm regards,
    Seema Karecha.

      Seema! That is one of the most moving things I have ever received! I am SO happy and rewarded by hearing that I have been useful to you! I am so moved to think that two little Indian children are growing up with the stories and ideas that I have written or passed on. I think I will print out what you have sent to me and put it on my wall and look at it when my spirits are a bit low! Very best wishes to you all. Andrew PS I am going off to teach now but later I will look at your blog. Will I see your paintings there?

    Thank you so much for your good wishes. Some of my works can be seen on my blog mycaterpillarcaravan.tumblr.com. I had done some shadow puppetry with children. You might enjoy viewing it.


    Will try and write to you regularly.
    Warm regards, Seema.

      Dear Seema We have been looking through your pages on your tumblle blog… ‘we’ means wife Julia, daughter Timea (18) and her partner Ritchi. We like what you have done very much and your overall theme is a delight. Your two boys look absolutely adorable. I didnt open the shadow theatre…can you tell me what is the minimum I can type in to get it that way…my computer thinks it is spam if I click on what you sent me and yesterday I WAS hit by a spam and lost my machine for the whole day. Yes, lets keep in touch. Andrew

    Dear Mr Wright,
    You have to type “tapanjk” in the YouTube search, and you will get to see 5 videos. All of these videos are related to the shadow puppet show done at my home. The boy in the first video, doing the introduction is Aryan, my elder son. He and Aditya, my younger son, have done the shadow puppetry for one of the plays, ‘David and Goliath’. I think you should be able to find it easily. If you find any problems viewing it, I can email the link to you. And thank you for the kind words. Seema.

    Dear Mr. Wright,

    I am preparing my final project for my TESL Teaching Grammar for Teachers course here in Montreal. I was just looking around the web for some ideas when I came across your delightful site! NOt only are you very generous about sharing your knowledge when it comes to teaching English, but it seems that you are a very creative soul. I love (!) the drawings in the gallery: so whimsical, and a beautiful use of colour. I’ll have to read more to find out more about you! For now, though, thanks for giving me some ideas 🙂
