Andrew McDonough at your School!

If you’ve never asked Lost Sheep author and illustrator  Andrew McDonough to visit your school, you’re missing out!  He tells stories, draws, takes the kids behind the scenes of creating a book and if you give him a coffee he will even do the staff devotions. How fantastic is an Andrew McDonough author visit? Read the comments from teachers and students below. To book a school visit, find out more, or hassle Andrew as to why he hasn’t visited your state lately, email him at schools@lostsheep.com.au

Term 4 2017  What about a Christmas themed School Visit?
Term Four is a great time to have Andrew visit your school. He has five knew stories, a stack of Christmas stories and he can sign loads of books for the kids.

When will Andrew be in your area in 2018?

February: The United Kingdom!
Yes! We’ve kicked Andrew out of the country for a month. He’ll be running storytelling workshops at the Hand in Hand Conference: London 9/10 Feb, Bradford 23-25 Feb. So if you have a school/church or bingo night in England why not invite Andrew along.

Brisbane: March 4-5
A jet-lagged and incoherent Andrew will stagger off the plane to run some workshops at the Ignite Conference in Brisbane. If you ask him nicely he might stay on for a day or two to speak at your school on the Monday.

Western New South Wales or any where else.
Come on schools let’s get Andrew away from the city smoke. Have a yak to the other schools in your area and see if we can put together a 3 or 4 day trip for Andrew. He likes a drive, Adelaide is only a couple of days drive from most schools in the country.

Western Australia???


Book Week 17-24 August 2018


South Australia: Andrew lives in your area so he has no excuses for not rocking up for a visit.

What the teachers said!

"All of our students loved having author and illustrator Andrew McDonough visit our school. Students were able to see, learn and understand about the book making process. Andrew kept students of all ages (R-7) captivated with his vibrantly illustrated stories, life experiences and drawing prowess."
Tania Schutz
Redeemer Lutheran College Nuriootpa S.A.

"Fabulous. The students, staff and grandparents thoroughly enjoyed Andrew’s presentations at the assembly and to each class. It was so much fun, Andrew makes his stories come alive, he uses so much  expression for the different characters. He had complete control of every class so the teachers could relax and enjoy the sessions as well. For the dollars paid it was absolute value for money!"
Jenny Pfeiffer
The Good Shepherd Lutheran College Angaston S.A.

"When Andrew McDonough comes to visit it is like a feast. When you read his books they’re like a hamburger. They have so many layers and you enjoy all of it. Once you start you don’t want to stop."
