Many thanks to Thing 1 and Thing 2 (a.k.a. Shonee and Arti Mirchandani above) and Clemence (top left) at Bookazine for inviting me to their fabulous Bookazine Children’s Bookfest on Sunday morning! After a fun Facebook Interview with Little Steps Hong Kong (Where’s Wally above :)), a huge host of kids, mums and dads were entertained with LOADS of story readings by the Hong Kong Talespinners (middle far right), Gregory March with his wonderful new yoga book for kids, The Dog who Chased His Tail (middle third from left), Ellen Ng and Assia Bennani (Hong Kong A to Z), Matthew Cooper (Black Rain Day), Bhakti Mathur (Amma Tell Me series) and last but not least, me with my Tale of Rickshaw Rooster from The Chinese Calendar Tales!

Yippee! Rickshaw Rooster and I are flying to Shanghai today for 3 fabulous school visits and a special appearance on The Bund!! Which of course is where that feisty rooster runs THAT race!! I can’t wait to see my old friends in Shanghai – and to make some new ones too! – and to see my lovely fans at the Shanghai International Literary Festival at 10am at M on the Bund on Sunday!
The Tale of Rickshaw Rooster is my homage to a city that I love, that has made me very welcome over the past 9 years, and my homage also to its remarkable history that made it The Paris of the East!
And if you haven’t already booked for my session at the SILF, here’s the link! http://www.m-restaurantgroup.com/event/sarah-brennan-rickshaw-the-rooster-childrens-session/
Do make sure you see some of the other exciting sessions too – it’s a fantastic opportunity to meet authors from around the world, for both adults and children, and to hear them talk in person about their work. Not to mention having your books signed by the authors themselves!!
See you soon, Shanghai, with a great big COCKADOODLE-DOOOOO!
