They’re in shop windows, arcades and doorways all over Hong Kong – they’re even on high heels! What a great celebration for the Year of the Rooster! And my Rickshaw Rooster, being very vain of course, thinks he’s the cock-a-doodliest of them all!

A very Happy New Year of the Rooster to you and your loved ones from me and that noisy new member of the Chinese Calendar Tales family, Rickshaw Rooster!
My darling Dad, John Dermod Brennan, passed away peacefully this morning, and my family and I are flying down to Brisbane to be with my mum and brother and sisters for the funeral. So we’re postponing the launch of Rickshaw Rooster for the moment. Here is my Dad smiling at me at one of the places he loved – Paradise Point in Queensland where he and my mum used to buy fish and chips and watch the pelicans. He was 90 in September and he lived a very full and interesting life. One day I hope to tell you more about him. Please spare a thought and a prayer for him on his next great journey.
