Thank you David Wong, Director of Operations at one of my favourite reading charities, Kids4Kids Hong Kong, who has just sent me this photo of a fabulous bunch of kids from Po Leung Kuk Wong Wing Shu Primary School in Hong Kong, each holding a copy of my book The Tale of Ming Kee Monkey! I was delighted to donate the books to this wonderful charity a few months ago, and it’s great to see my mischievous little monkey spreading some happiness and fun to the kids of Hong Kong!

Many thanks to Lisa Share, head of libraries at The Kellett School, for inviting me and my Chinese Zodiac animals to two fabulous days with the Kellett kids! On Monday I visited the Pok Fu Lam campus with my mischievous Ming Kee Monkey, where the lovely Natalie Fitton hosted me to a fun day of story readings in the library with Years 3 to 5!

Today I had another lovely day at the Kowloon Bay campus, hosted by my dear friend Beth McNeilly (below left with some fabulous Kellett Monkeys) in the library. We had fun story readings for Years 2 to 4, who all met my Ming Kee Monkey and heard the fabulous true life story of the famous Buddhist explorer Xuanzang and his Journey to the West, immortalised in the Legend of the Monkey King! And it was even more special for me to bring along my oldest friend Prue Kesby (below right) – we were in Grade One together, a long time ago!

The mystery is solved! It’s that mischievous Ming Kee Monkey!

MK and vine lo res

If you’ve been wondering just who has been causing all the mischief and mayhem in my last few posts, the mystery is now solved! It’s mischievous Ming Kee Monkey, the star of my latest Chinese Calendar Tale, out just in time for the Year of the Monkey! And here she is, swinging on a vine with a handful of feathers yanked from that poor peacock’s tail!

If you want to read all about her adventures in the magical paradise of Shangri-La in Yunnan Province, you can now buy The Tale of Ming Kee Monkey in all good bookstores in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia!
