Mr. Willy (also sometimes known as "Willy Welch") is a children's entertainer, picture book author and recording artist who brings his songs and stories (and sometimes puppets) to schools, churches, child care centers, and libraries. 
Willy works with large or small groups, in any part of the country, grades K-6 as well as adults.
Willy's presentation is as entertaining as author visits can be. With a combination of humor, songs (with guitar), and storytelling, he fires the audiences' imagination. 
Willy frequently presents one of his books as well as a work-in-progress. He talks about the creative process, involving the students in his presentation, with a Q&A for most grades. He is also available for writing workshops.

Mr. Welch was a joy to work with. We scheduled him for the summer of 2016 and one family told me that he was their favorite performer and they loved his guitar. I enjoyed talking with Mr. Welch after his performance and had the privilege of getting to know him better. He is great to work with and would make a great addition to any library's program schedule.

Mr. Willy gave a wonderful performance at our library! The children were, literally, lying on the floor in laughter. Mr. Willy manages to engage the children and keep the parents entertained as well. He actually had the parents singing along in addition to the children! Our patrons are already asking for him next year!

Willy performed at our library for our 2011 Summer Reading Program. I really wasn't sure what to expect, but from the get-go, Willy had the children, and adults, engaged and entertained by his storytelling, musicianship, and high energy, keeping everyone smiling and laughing! There is no doubt Willy is a great storyteller, and he weaves it seamlessly in with his guitar playing. I will definitely have Willy back again!
