Many thanks to Thing 1 and Thing 2 (a.k.a. Shonee and Arti Mirchandani above) and Clemence (top left) at Bookazine for inviting me to their fabulous Bookazine Children’s Bookfest on Sunday morning! After a fun Facebook Interview with Little Steps Hong Kong (Where’s Wally above :)), a huge host of kids, mums and dads were entertained with LOADS of story readings by the Hong Kong Talespinners (middle far right), Gregory March with his wonderful new yoga book for kids, The Dog who Chased His Tail (middle third from left), Ellen Ng and Assia Bennani (Hong Kong A to Z), Matthew Cooper (Black Rain Day), Bhakti Mathur (Amma Tell Me series) and last but not least, me with my Tale of Rickshaw Rooster from The Chinese Calendar Tales! We even had a Facebook interview with a lovely journalist from Little Steps Hong Kong, dressed as Wally (middle second from left)! It was SO much fun! There are tons more fabulous photos here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/bookfestbybookazine/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1412166398843876!

My dear friends will all know that, sadly, my Dad passed away on the 18th of January, and we had to postpone Rickshaw Rooster’s funny and fabulous Hong Kong launch at Bookazine, Princes Building, in Central. But you can’t keep a good rooster down…and I’m delighted to tell you that the Book Launch is on again, on Saturday, 11th February from 2-3pm! I’ll be posting the new invitation on my blog tomorrow, but in the meantime, make sure you put it in your diaries!

Rickshaw Rooster is cock-a-doodling in the Press!

If you’re as excited as I am to get rid of that mischievous Monkey and start a brand new, fabulous Year of the Rooster, then what better way to celebrate than to come to the Hong Kong Launch of my latest book, illustrated by Harry Harrison – The Tale of Rickshaw Rooster! It’s a hilariously funny story about a noisy, cocky but very loyal Rooster who dares to take on all the foreign very-important-people at Shanghai’s Annual Race! You’re going to love it!  See your official invitation below. Don’t forget to RSVP with Bookazine on enquiries@bookazine.com.hk or phone 2522-1785 or register on Face Book at https://www.facebook.com/events/1844568015815956/ as numbers are limited…

I had a wonderful time at the Hong Kong launch of Room To Read’s BuyABookGiveABook campaign last night at Bookazine in Princes Building! For the rest of September, when you buy any of 50 fabulous titles at one of Bookazines stores at Princes Building, Exchange Square, Lyndhurst Terrace, Repulse Bay or the Shui On Centre, a local language book for a child in an underdeveloped country will be funded by Bookazine! These books include titles by Hong Kong’s Room To Read Writer Ambassadors Bhakti Mhatur, Nury Vittachi and myself 🙂 , Kids Fest books, and books by Room To Read founder John Woods (see top right!). All books included in the campaign have a fun sticker attached to help you find them.

John Woods gave an inspiring talk about the fabulous work Room To Read are doing, reaching literacy targets ahead of time in their quest to end illiteracy for all children, everywhere. Read more about Room To Read’s amazing work building libraries and schools, and publishing local language books, for kids in underdeveloped countries (and find out how you can get involved) here: http://www.roomtoread.org/

If you’d like to support the BuyABookGiveABook campaign, just pop along to one of the above Bookazine stores this September! You can update your collection of Sarah Brennan books at the same time 🙂 !
