The Dog Blog returns with a Hairy Haiku!

WOOOFFF! It’s me, Bobby, back again with the best, most fantastic, most extraordinarily wonderful haiku in the world. I’m INORDINATELY proud of this poem (and if you don’t know what that means, go to my Mum’s new Wicked Word for the Week!) It’s all about what I did last night… Mum didn’t appreciate it, but I can’t think why.


I am an angel

Even when I trash the bins

Like I did last night.

Well that was fun! I had a great Skype conversation with a whole lot of Grade 6 kids and their teacher Junaida Bana at Cranbrook Primary School in Essex in England on Wednesday, and we talked about everything from food in Hong Kong to favourite books to why I love being an author to the strangest thing I’ve ever seen in China! Thanks kids and Junaida for a great time! See you next February!

What fun! I’ll be having a video call with the kids of Cranbrook Primary School in Essex, UK, this afternoon when they’ll be asking me all sorts of questions about my books and about Hong Kong and China, not to mention school life for kids living here! So a big warm Jo San to you all, and if any of my Hong Kong fans want to say hello to your UK counterparts, why not post a comment to this blog?

You’ve got to hand it to the kids of Canadian International School Hong Kong – they’ve been busy sending me horribly scary haikus for the last couple of weeks! But what’s happened to all you other kids out there? Where are you all? Have you been kidnapped by an alien from the planet Zurg ? Or maybe you’ve just glued all your fingers to your lunchbox?? Or has your brain been occupied by an evil brain-occupying octopus??? I’m worried about you! Quick, send me an entry into my Haunting Haiku competition to prove to me that you’re still alive!   Details on my Competitions Page!

A Happy Haiku – dedicated to the Chilean miners

My Haiku for the brave miners of Chile, rescued after 69 days trapped underground

Thirty three miners

Buried deep under the ground

Now they walk on air.
