Thank you so much for providing such a valuable and memorable day for all of us. Kids and faculty alike were beaming about the session. Please thank Ben and Zack again, for the willingness to perform and engage in the St. Philip’s mission. I would love to discuss more about the art of storytelling and how we might give our students a chance to make it part of their lives.

Praise for Hoot Owl Blues:Tales and Tunes to Conjure Up a Mood.
National Award: The American Library Association’s List of Notable Children’s Recordings for the Year 2000.
K-Gr. 5–Six ghostly tales and four songs set a spooky mood….The tales are followed by bluesy folk songs, some traditional, some written by Wheeless and her son who performs on guitar. The songs often extend the tale. Wheeless has a lovely singing voice and her son is quite accomplished on guitar. Her voice is well suited to the stories she tells, and she varies it nicely for eerie sounds….Children who love to hear scary stories,but don’t really like to be scared, will enjoy this recording….
I can’t forget your presentation…. Please dont forget me when you are doing the storytelling workshop… You sure know how to make a story come to life… You are so gifted and you were a blessing. Thank you.
