I was so happy to hear this week from two of my lovely fans from far away! To the left is Renzo, dressed as Rhonda Rabbit for Book Week at the International School of Panama in Central America – fabulous costume Renzo! I trust that you’re eating all your greens!  And to the right is Zara from Texas in the United States with my latest book The Tale of Ping Pong Pig, and the rest of the Chinese Calendar Tales set! Zara met me many years ago at her school in Shanghai! Warm thanks to their dad Luis and mum Helen respectively for sending me these fabulous photos! A very early, happy Year of the Pig to you all!

A very happy Mid-Autumn Festival to you! I hope that you’re all enjoying the holidays today in Hong Kong. The most famous features of the Festival are moon cakes and lanterns…and here is a beautiful lantern photographed by my beautiful daughter Beatrice – thank you Bea! The Mid-Autumn Festival is also called – you guessed it – the Moon Festival, and sometimes the Mooncake Festival or the Lantern Festival! There are some lovely Chinese folk stories associated with the Moon Festival, including the Legend of the Moon Goddess, Chang’e, and the Legend of the Rabbit in the Moon. If you want to read more, you can click here: http://www.moonfestival.org/the-legend-of-chang-e.html, or, better yet, read my Chinese Calendar Tale, The Tale of Rhonda Rabbit! You can even buy it here: http://www.auspicioustimes.com/product/the-tale-of-rhonda-rabbit/!
