Tim's Bookshop CNY Event 21 Feb 2015

Gong Ci Fa Xai a.k.a. Season’s Bleatings for Chinese New Year!

Come and celebrate the brand new Year of the Ram (or Sheep or Goat…) at Tim’s Bookshop in Maling Road, Canterbury, in Melbourne this Saturday morning at 10.30am! We’ll have a fun story reading to introduce my new Chinese Zodiac character, a quiz with prizes for everyone from 3 year olds to the grown-ups, laissee packets for every kid (with a yummy chocolate gold coin!), free Rodney Ram bookmarks, and a book signing! It’s a great story for kids from 4 to 40 (and their mums and dads!). So don’t miss it! Every book sold will help support the international children’s charity Room to Read.

A Fun Frolic at Fintona!

Rodney Ram and I started our Chinese New Year Melbourne tour at the wonderful Fintona Girls School this morning, with a wild and woolly assembly! We talked all about Chinese New Year, and the Chinese Zodiac, and how it all started with Lord Buddha’s famous Great Race, and how you have to get everything super-clean in time for the big day, including your house, and your business, and your haircut! Then the gorgeous girls met my equally gorgeous Ram for a fun story reading! It was a fun frolic! Many thanks to Head of Junior School, Sally Clayton (above), librarian Robyn Sundberg and Year 2 teacher Andrea Sherburn for hosting me! I look forward to lots of entries in my Clever Competition from the Fintona Flock!

G’day, Aussie, Here We Are!

Cute Ram

Rodney Ram and I are VERY excited to be in Australia for Chinese New Year! We’re visiting some fabulous schools in Melbourne this week and Sydney next week, and we can’t wait! Sheep have always been very important to Australia…so Rodney is going to feel right at home, so long as nobody tries to shear him…or EAT him! Keep following my blog to find out what we’re doing!
