On Wednesday I took my tasty little Ping Pong Pig to meet all my old friends at Kennedy School in Pok Fu Lam! 900 kiddies from Year 1 to Year 6 made that difficult choice between crispy pork and cute pink pigs as they exhorted Ping Pong to Run Pig Run! or Stay Pig Stay! while the crafty Minister of Most Important Things tried to track her down, in four delicious story reading sessions! A big Thank You to English Co-ordinator Jeff Moore for inviting me in, and assistant librarian Susan Mifsud (below to my right, with Michelle Spratt teacher librarian to my left) for being such a welcoming host! And to all you Kennedy kids – I look forward to receiving your entries in my new Clever Competition!

Desmond saving catDesmond Dog, the hero of Hong Kong, is so noble he even saves drowning cats! But yesterday there was not a cat in sight when he visited the 900 kids of Kennedy School in Pok Fu Lam! We had 3 fabulous reading sessions and the kids made expert pirates and dogs with their “ah-ha-me-hearties” , “woof“s and “ROAR”s! Everybody LOVED Harry Harrison’s funny and fabulous illustrations, and was fascinated to hear the history of that notorious pirate queen Ching Shih! Many thanks to all the lovely staff and especially Jeff Moore, Head of English, who was my wonderful host! Photos to come!

Rickshaw Rooster is off and running in Hong Kong Schools! On Tuesday 17th January, he made a funny and fabulous visit to Kennedy School in Pok Fu Lam, where he met 900 primary school kids and their teachers!! Many thanks to Jeff Moore, Head of English, for being such a great host!

And today he raced into my nearest neighbours here in Tai Po at the wonderful Japanese International School, where we met all the Grade 3s to Grade 6s, with a fun story, much cockadoodling, and lots of luscious Chinese history thrown in! We had SO much fun! Thank you my dear friends Cath Wan and Cong Capati-Contreras, from the Library, for being my very warm and welcoming hosts!

KENNEDY #1

Ming Kee Monkey had her very first outing today at Kennedy School in Pok Fu Lam! It was the very first time that I read her story to anyone, anywhere, and it was such fun to introduce her to her new fans! Special thanks to Head of English Jeff Moore for being such a fabulous host, and to all the kids and teachers of Grades 3 to 6 for being such a great audience! And a big hello to the scrumptious kids of Grades 1 to 2 who met my cheeky Pin Yin Panda early in the morning! Photos to come!
