What a wonderful lot of Horribly Hilarious Halloween stories I’ve received from you all! I’m judging the competition now…but I’ve got a VERY busy week ahead of me, with three school visits and two Christmas Fairs in just six days, so please have patience while I get the judging finished, and I’ll post the results as soon as I possibly can!

  1. When is the new Chinese Calendar tales book ready for year of the rooster ready for purchasing? ?

    • Jeanette you can purchase it immediately online at I’m in Brisbane attending to my disabled parents as my 90 year old dad has just had heart surgery, so will do a post about this right away. A very merry Christmas to you! Sarah

      • Hi Sarah , received my book today and loved the historical background to the story . I have a couple of stories to link in with the year of the Rooster and the various artists like Picasso as an inspiration I was in Shanghai last October/ November but it was raining badly so did not get to the Bund but saw the French Quarter , Yuen Gardens and the Museum of Arts as we only 24 hours approx. Pearl tower was covered in cloud so would like to revisit and see it all properly. I went with 12 students and our principal, primary principal and our head of international studies to Beijing, Hangzhou, Jinan and Shanghai visiting schools and different famous tourist sites for 2 weeks. Have been before to Xian, Nanjing Beijing and Yangzhou.
        I hope your Father has recovered well from his heart surgery .It is always a scary time and our own mortality is brought to the forefront. I hope you have a great 2017 and cant wait the year of the Dog and Pig books.

      • Hi Jeanette – thanks for your lovely post, and sorry it’s taken so long to reply. I’m glad you had such a fabulous visit to Shanghai. It’s one of my favourite cities, and always an exciting place to be. I’m going up in 2 weeks time to launch Rickshaw Rooster at the Shanghai International Literary Festival on Sunday 19th March and visiting some schools too! Sadly my darling Dad passed away on 18th January. He was a wonderful man and it’s a difficult thing to adjust to. But I have many very wonderful memories of him, and we shared a love of books and of writing. A very Happy Year of the Rooster to you and all your students! Sarah
