This morning I also visited Arden Anglican School in Beecroft where I met all the Grade 1s to Grade 3s in chapel, and presented a Boxed Set of the Chinese Calendar Tales to First Prize winner Saskia in the Practically Perfect Pig Tale Story Competition, Grade 1 to 3 Category! Isn’t she a clever girl! I also presented The Tale of Sybil Snake to Second Place winner Alisha (who sadly was home sick today, so her best friend received it on her behalf) and The Dark Horse Activity Book to young Muyao Zhang, who placed fourth! I look forward to receiving lots more entries from Arden Anglican School in my future competitions! You can see me below, with my pig Ping Pong and Saskia (left), and Muyao (right).

Well done Daisy!

On Wednesday afternoon, I had the great pleasure of presenting Daisy Palmer, winner of the Grade 4 to 6 Category of the Practically Perfect Pig Tale Competition, with her First Place prize of a Boxed Set of the Chinese Calendar Tales! Here we are at the assembly at Japanese International School in Hong Kong, with, from left to right, librarian Cath Wan, Principal Simon Walton, Daisy’s mum Claire, and head of Student Support, Glenda Baillie. Thank you Simon for inviting me – it was a real honour!

A big HELLO to my friends at the International School of Panama: Director Ms. Viki Stiebert and Franco, Renzo and Leire Cobo, three of my lovely fans who have been keeping their collection of Chinese Calendar Tales up to date ever since they went home to Panama after living in Hong Kong! The Cobo family have very generously donated a complete Boxed Set of my Calendar Tales to their school – and Ms Stiebert has very kindly invited me to come and visit should I ever be in the vicinity! Thank you, Ms Stiebert, I will most certainly try to visit you all one day! And thank you, Franco, Renzo and Leire and dad Luis for keeping in touch! Espero verte pronto!
