(I'm happy to select stories on the day depending on the audience - age, energy, situation etc - or agree discuss stories that are likely to fit in with your class, subject or school needs. I can select stories and format sessions to fit in with subjects such as Drama or specific topics or issues such as bullying or cultural understanding.)
