Designed to foster and encourage a love for reading and writing, the "Krumpp's First Taste Reading Tour", is a vibrant, highly interactive presentation that champions the best parts of storytelling.

"I am so delighted to speak about the recent children's book author visit at our school by Mike! The event was a resounding success, leaving a lasting impression on both our students and staff. He captivated the students with his engaging storytelling and interactive presentation. He also spent extra time getting to know the students, connecting with them, and answering all of their curiosities and questions about the writing and illustrating process. He definitely   inspired our students to explore their own creative potential! 
Mike’s visit was organized seamlessly, with demonstrating professionalism and enthusiasm from start to finish. They were accommodating of our schedule and created a warm and inclusive atmosphere that encouraged participation from all students! Many students have expressed newfound interest in reading, writing, and illustrating thanks to Mike’s inspiration!"

“It was a joy to have Michael in my classroom! He made this experience so interactive for my students, they were all thoroughly engaged from start to finish. Even the “busiest” of the bunch were wholly invested in what he had to say. I can’t wait to have him back!"

“Michael Gayle (“Magic Mike”) provided an excellent and interactive oral / visual presentation to our students at La Citadelle. With each presentation, Gayle creatively engaged with our students and shared with them his love of storytelling, his unique writing style, and the various artistic inspirations he has encountered on his journey as an author and artist.
Our students were very receptive to Gayle’s presentations and his readings, with numerous moments of laughter and hands eagerly raised to answer Gayle’s stimulating questions.
Overall, we were very happy to have Gayle visit La Citadelle and provide our students with an inspiring glimpse into his storytelling methods as a children’s author and would love to have him back to visit us in the near future.”

Our session with Magic Mike was great! He read his wonderful book, 'Krumpp's First Taste’, the children loved every second of it! After hearing the story they had so many ideas and were all desperate to start drawing and writing, it sparked their imagination.

“Magic Mike visited our school last spring and shared, "Krumpp's First Taste" with our Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 classes! He was very engaging and animated with our students. His [Mike’s] book was beautifully and uniquely illustrated and written with poetic flair. All of our students had an excellent time listening to the story.
Mike also took the time to answer their [the students'] questions with detail and student-friendly language. Further, Mike was kind enough to sign purchased books, and take many photos with our students. I highly recommend Magic Mike to visit your school/institute to share Krumpp's First Taste, along with his other works.”
