'Yvonne Weatherhead is a highly motivated, lively and confident woman, a natural leader who has inspired so many governors, teachers, parents and children who have been fortunate enough to come into contact with her. She is also a skilful writer who has a wonderful ear for language. Her prose is lively, entertaining, vividly realised and her stories have a particular appeal to children. All schools should have copies of her books'
