A big thank you to the friendly, enthusiastic, book-loving staff and students of Avondale Grammar in Singapore for hosting me yesterday! We had a fabulous day of story readings with the Foundation to Year 2 students, who met Chester Choi and Pin Yin Panda, then my Introduction to Poetry Workshop with the Year 3 and 4s, and my Books are a Brain’s Best Friend with the Year 5 to 8s! We even had time for a quick reading of A Dirty Story to the Year 5 to 8s, who very accurately predicted the rhyming words to each couplet! I saw books everywhere, the teachers were huge fans of book-reading, and the students were clearly HUGE book-readers, with, predictably, impressive general knowledge and very interesting questions and opinions to offer. Now that’s what I call an education! I look forward to some great entries in my Clever Competition!

Hellooo to all my fans in Singapore!

Today I arrived in Singapore on the first leg of Rodney Ram’s Rambunctious International Reading Tour! Rodney and I (and all the other Chinese Calendar Tale Characters) will be visiting some fabulous schools in Singapore before heading down south to Australia on Thursday to visit schools in Sydney and Melbourne! We’re on the run!
