Hello again, and a very happy soon-to-arrive Year of the Monkey to you! The Tale of Ming Kee Monkey is just about to launch in Hong Kong and it’s time for another international story competition! This time, I want you to write me a story all about a mischievous Monkey! You also have to include a Chinese setting, a Chinese Emperor, a magic teapot, a big flood and the colour verditer. Hmm…. you’ll have to do a bit of research to find out what that colour is! Entries are welcome from primary school aged students all around the world, so get out those pens and writing pads and start writing! The deadline date is Thursday 24th March. Go to my Clever Competitions page above to find out all the details!

Ming Kee Monkey and I have had a ball this week, in two fabulous Hong Kong schools! On Monday we were meant to be visiting Japanese International School, but the weather was SOOOO cold that the Hong Kong Education Board closed all the primary schools – so I’ll be seeing them again later in February!

On Tuesday we visited German Swiss International School at their Wanchai campus, and the feisty kids of Grades 3 to 6 met my mischievous Monkey in three fun story readings! Many thanks to my wonderful old friend Megan Lindsay for hosting me and for preparing such a fun welcome board (above)!

And then today I spent a very happy morning at International College of Hong Kong, Hong Lok Yuen, when the big kids met Ming Kee Monkey and the little kids met Pin Yin Panda. We had a lot of fun! Thanks to Deputy Principal Brett MacKenzie for inviting me! (Photos to come!)
