“Mr. Trisef, I just wanted to let you know how your visit inspired my 4th grade son to read. For the first time in his life he became interested in books. He read all of your books and even dressed up as Ret for Halloween. You will be our favorite author for life, thank you so much!” – Mother Forever In Your Debt – Whichita, KS


“I had one student borrow a copy of the first book from me on Thursday then returned it to me on Friday ready for book #2. It doesn't get much better than that!”  – Helen Turner, English Teacher, Bancroft Middle School – San Leandro, CA


“The assembly went great! Lots of teachers responded positively to me and to Mr. Trisef about his presentation. They loved the fact that he mentioned he didn't really like reading when he was their age, but then learned to love reading. That really appealed to a lot of the students here. One teacher mentioned he thought it was the best author assembly we have had. Another student -- a difficult reader to please -- gave him a high five as Mr. Trisef was leaving and thought his books were the coolest and called him "The Oracle Man."  Coming from that kid, that is a high compliment. So, yes, the post-assembly response has been amazing. I've had to create a waiting-list in my library for his books.”  – Ann Walker, Enoch Elementary – Enoch, UT


“Thank you so much! That was TOTALLY cool! I can't wait until the next time!”  – Di Lau-Yee, Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary – San Francisco, CA


“A student was sent to my office for lunch detention for misbehaving during class. We discussed his behavior and I let him know he would be staying with me for the rest of the lunch period to reflect on his behavior. He asked if he could quickly finish his reflection and then borrow my copy of "Oracle - Sunken Earth" (I turn my head to keep from laughing as I hand him my copy of the book). After lunch, he asked if he could come back tomorrow and finish reading the book. I love it!!! You can't make this stuff up!” – Norma Spencer, Principal, Alexander Science Center School – Los Angeles, CA


“The assembly was incredible and such a treat for the kids! Thank you so much for this opportunity.”  – Charis Gibbs, Monroe Elementary - San Leandro, CA


“Thank you so much for reaching out to us with this opportunity! Our kids were rapt during the entire presentation and left extremely excited. This was such a memorable experience for our kiddos and we are so glad that we got the opportunity to partner with you and hope to be able to do so again in the future!” – Mariah Kelly, Master Teacher, Osborn Middle School – Phoenix, AZ


“My daughter came home excited about a book series finally! Maybe I'll be able to get her to read regularly now! She was rambling about this author visit! So excited!” – Grateful Father – Washington, DC

Mr. Trisef was phenomenal with the presentation and equally so in engaging and connecting to the students! It says something when there is a line of students in the front office trying to use the one phone to call their parents for a CC number to order a book. C.W. Trisef, you are on your way!” – Student’s Mother, Westside Magnet Charter School – Bend, OR
