A Woolly and Wonderful day at The Harbour School!

A big helloooo to my new friends (and some old ones) at The Harbour School in Kennedy Town! I had a fabulous time today introducing my Chinese Calendar Tales to the kids! Rodney Ram had a good old frolic with the Grade 1 to Grade 3 kids, then Chester Choi raised a few screams and giggles with the Kindy and Pre-Kindy classes. And to top it all off, the Grade 4s to Grade 8s met my mysterious Dark Horse and learned some fabulous history about Han Wudi and the Silk Road. Huge thanks to lovely librarian Goldie Wong who hosted me today (and created the fabulous poster above), and to Deputy Principal Christine Greenberg and Principal Jadis Blurton for inviting me.

Yesterday evening I read my new story The Tale of Rodney Ram to more than 20 lovely teachers at ESF Educational Services in Quarry Bay at the end of my workshop about How to Create Bookworms in the Digital Age! They all sat on the floor, and were very good at answering all my questions, and even gave fabulous names beginning with “Sh” to all the sheep, though I did have to remind a few teachers to remember to put their hands up and not to call out :)! Big thanks to Emma Dorrell, Education Manager, who invited me to speak, and to the participants for being such good sports!

A big hello to all my friends at Japanese International School in Tai Po! It was great to see you again, especially now I’m just living down the road from you all!

Hello to all my lovely fans out there! I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and I wish you a wonderful New Year in 2015!

It’s been AGES since I last posted on my blog, but I have my reasons! Yes, my family and I, including our dog Bobby, moved house in December, to beautiful Tai Po Kau in the New Territories here in Hong Kong! And we love it! It’s clean, it’s green, and there are lots of trees to hug, and lovely long walks to take, and best of all, so many monkeys and birds to watch in the forest nearby!


My Hong Kong tour with my new book for the coming Chinese New Year starts tomorrow morning…so here above is a sneak peek of my fun new Chinese Zodiac character, Rodney Ram! He’s handsome, artistic and creative, but very shy and he doesn’t want to lead his flock! But then famine strikes his home in Guangdong province and the flock gets nervous. Will Rodney rise to the challenge and save his woolly friends? You’ll have to buy a copy of my book The Tale of Rodney Ram to find out! It’s in the shops in Hong Kong right now!
