Felice Arena was a most engaging and truly inspirational author. He enthralled the children with his tales and involved them in acting out one of his stories. He was able to get down to their level and inspire them to continue reading.

Felice had our Year 7 boys totally mesmerized with his inspiring stories and entertaining role playing activities. A great role model for boys!
