It was fun and frolics at IMS Hong Kong today when I met the primary school kids and their dedicated teachers for four fabulous reading sessions! Special thanks to co-founder Karin Ann, Primary Principal Nicolette Correy, and curriculum director Lynsey Gagie for managing such a great day, the lovely Anne with an “E” who looked after me and fed me a delicious lunch, the courageous Miss Pam Moseley (who may or may not be eaten by a dragon tonight!) and especially the kids for their terrific letters, drawings, and questions! Enter my Clever Competition…NOW….or my dragon will eat you too!

Wow – what a wonderful weekend I just had at the Shanghai International Literary Festival! We started off with my reading session with Pin Yin Panda at 10am on Saturday – it was chockablock with fabulous kids and their even more fabulous mums and dads! Then I had the great pleasure of meeting other writers from around the world, hearing their stories and of course, spending time in the gorgeous setting of M on the Bund! Pin Yin Panda felt quite at home in such a famous, glamorous crowd!!

Hello all you muddy DUCKS and Western International School writers! Thanks so much for having me on Thursday and Friday last week – it was great fun to introduce you to the fantastically beautiful, talented, world famous and modest Pin Yin Panda! I hope to see you all again soon – and in the meantime look forward to your entries into my Clever Competition! Here’s Fiona Collins, WISS’s wonderful librarian, with me and my panda – and here are some of the wizard kids of WISS! (Photos of those DUCKlings to come!)
