Meet Vincy Chan, winner of the Kids4Kids Quiz Competition after my Author Visit via Zoom recently with my new book, The Marvellous Adventures of Maggie and Methuselah! Vincy very cleverly answered all the quiz questions correctly and gave a winning description of where she thinks the missing Chater Collection might be found! Here’s what Vincy said:

I think the beautiful missing collection will be in the government house’s humongous, magnificent garden and there will be an odd, smelly tunnel. You will find a gold, antique key and a brain racking poem that could help you find those unique paintings. Those appealing paintings will be in an old, wooden chest covered with gold and silver coins.”

I think that with writing skills like this, Vincy is well on the way to becoming an author herself! Well done Vincy!

You can listen to my session at Kids4Kids – and learn some fascinating Hong Kong history, as well as find out all about my funny, exciting new chapter book HERE! Thank you David Wong and the inspiring team at Kids4Kids for making this recording available! And thank you to Vincy’s dad for this beautiful portrait of Vincy!

Trevor is Dad to Maggie, one of the three heroes of my new book The Marvellous Adventures of Maggie and Methuselah! He met Maggie’s mum, Ursula, back when he was working as an animal conservator at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, London. He’s shy, he’s kind, and he loves his daughter Maggie to distraction! But he also loves MATHS PROBLEMS! In fact, his ambition is to solve the world’s greatest maths problems, which is one reason why he loves being a stay-at-home Dad, especially when Maggie is at school and he can work on his computer!

If you click on the link here you can see a fun animation by our fabulous artist Charly Cheung of Trevor busily taking notes back at the museum! Isn’t it fun?!

You can find out more about Trevor and the rest of the characters in my book THIS SATURDAY at the official launch! Make sure you register on this link, and REMEMBER TO BRING A CLIPBOARD!
