“What a lovely piece of writing. I really enjoyed my visit to Elgin, and your interview was such good fun. Maybe you should become a full-time book festival interviewer – you do a brilliant job.”
Angus Roxburgh, former BBC Special Correspondent

“Jane Sandell is a talented, creative and pro-active librarian with a mission to inspire and encourage young people to fall in love with reading for pleasure. Jane’s enthusiasm, expertise and imagination are second to none, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with her on a number of events and book festivals aimed at bringing a love of reading to Scottish children. Quite simply, Jane is a star.”
Cathy Cassidy, children’s author

“The best thing about the session with Jane was her humour; she is so lovable and kind. I don’t think I would have chosen an Eva Ibbotson book but I loved it! And I chose Between Two Seas which was recommended by Jane. This has now become one of my favourite books!”
Rebicca, Primary School pupil

“I have known Jane for many years and have been lucky enough to work with her in schools and libraries and at festivals. Her deep knowledge of books for both children and adults is impressive, and her genuine enthusiasm infectious. She delights in bringing readers and books together and engages warmly and easily with people of all ages. She has rightly earned the affection and respect of everyone who knows her – children and teenagers, adult library users and fellow professionals.”
Linda Newbery, author

“Jane Sandell in particular was superb, her knowledge and recollections from the book were impressive and her ad-libs were fascinating.”
