“Phil's storytime is an extraordinary experience. He can spew out words faster than the speed of light. He can make time stand still. He can make kids and adults hang on every word. He is Mill Valley Library’s Super Storyteller.”
Anji Brenner, City Librarian, Mill Valley Public Library
“Phil is a master storyteller, fabulously dramatic, knowing his stories so well that he really acts them out rather than reads them. …Equally important, he is giving the children the gift of oral tradition, a gift they will surely remember when they become adults.”
Old Firehouse School, Mill Valley
“Phil is an excellent storyteller. He captures the attention of his audience with strong dynamics, sound effects, and by bringing forth the emotion of the characters and stories. His welcoming and kind energy encourages young children to feel relaxed and at ease, while remaining captivated by the material. He chooses stories that have a message, allowing children to learn their own values by thinking on the story. Phil brings back the ancient and dying art of storytelling.”
Cynthia, Fairfax CA, mother of 2
“When Phil reads, or rather, acts out, Caps for Sale, the monkeys are real! Listening to him is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.”
Marilyn Wronsky, Children’s Librarian, Corte Madera Public Library

I've become wanton as I wither.
Because old age
is not a time for growing.
It is a time of leaving
of letting go
unbridling all the love
I've held in check since childhood
and sending it to places where hearts
are dry. I do it wantonly, before I die.
When next you see a withered leaf
fluttering like a newborn in a tree,
stop and say hello: that's me.
and if you're dry, come close
and put your lips to me.
I'll send you love, and you send love to me.
~ Phil Sheridan | October 2014
