Ode to a single sock…

Here, just for a bit of fun, is a poem I’ve just written about a sad single sock I have at home, which has lost its pair!  I challenge you to write a poem about something funny, like a shoe, or a coat hanger, or maybe even a toothbrush! Enjoy!

Mickey Mo

Here is my very old dog, Mo, transformed into Mickey Mo! Now Mo is here to tell you that it really isn’t that difficult to make a Rat Mask! It just takes a bit of care, and maybe some help from a grown-up. And if you can make this mask, you can EASILY complete your challenges in The Great Year of the Rat Challenge 2020!

And be eligible to win some fantastic prizes!!

So if you haven’t registered yet, ask Mum or Dad to click this link right away! We can’t wait to see YOUR mask!

I just visited the kids and teachers Shatin Junior School by Zoom, to do a fun live story reading of The Tale of Run Run Rat! We had over 120 kids logging in! Thanks so much to teachers Trudy McMillin and James Haworth for organising and hosting this fun online event! Below you can see a couple of fun video clips, and above, some photos. You can even see my little dog Mozart in one of them, enjoying the story!
