‘Transformations’ is the perfect title for this excellent book as it has the capacity to transform classroom practice and bedtime stories and is an absolute essential for all classroom practitioners and parents who wish to inspire and excite children through the power of oral storytelling. Phil McDermott is a renowned storyteller himself and Transformations reflects his own unique voice which is able to transport us to different times, places and situations. With its powerful stories, commentaries and ideas for follow up activities and discussions, this book goes far beyond the requirements of the curriculum and will enable teachers and parents to set fire to children’s imaginations through the power of language. ~ Virginia Bower, Senior Lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University
