"This was a great event! Kevin was so open and engaging and the kids really took to him. The children really enjoyed the entire program, telling branch librarians how much they loved it. One parent logged in from home and said the book was gorgeous and she would be ordering it for her child. Kevin was everything you'd want in a presenter talking about a tough topic. He spoke from his own experience, and was incredibly kind and thoughtful when kids brought up their own experiences with death." — New York Public Library
"CAPE by Kevin Johnson is beautiful, inspiring, and a wonderful tribute! The book is moving and talks about the difficult topic of loss in an empowering way. The gorgeous illustrations perfectly complement this moving piece of literature. CAPE is a must-have for public/school/home libraries! Our scholars enjoyed an engaging virtual author visit with Kevin as well. He shared background about his life, shared inspiring messages, and encouraged all to share their creativity with the world. Kevin left plenty of time for questions and answered them with enthusiasm. | highly recommend a visit with this up-and-coming author." — Marybeth Barbro, Librarian
"Kevin was very engaging over Zoom! He connected with our 1st - 5th graders by keeping their interest up by making connections and using appealing visuals. After reading his book Cape to our students, Kevin asked them questions about the story and they enjoyed asking him follow-up questions as well. The theme of the book allowed for an open-ended discussion about how everyone has a superpower. He discussed (in just the right amount of detail for students in the elementary grades to understand) his writing process as well as the perseverance to get published." — Dawn Lawless, Principal
"A great story connects people. We held a storytelling event for some of the Natixis staff. It was a fantastic morning, where we had the opportunity to get to know Kevin Johnson (aka Captain Create) and learn more about the world of storytelling." — Mariana Ferreira, Natixis
