If you’re one of the dedicated writers who entered my Terrific Tiger Tale writing competition, you’ll be wanting to know who won places! But I’m still reading and hugely enjoying your stories, so you’ll have to bear with me a little while longer! Hang in there, and if you get frustrated, just let out a little ROAR – it always helps :)!

Riva with Ms Leanne Sercombe

Isn’t this a wonderful photo of Reva Kamath from Discovery College, Hong Kong, who at just 8 years old came Second Place in the Year 4 to 6 category of my Oxcellent Ox Tale Competition? Reva chose The Tale of Run Run Rat as her prize, and here she is being presented with it by PYP Teacher Librarian Mrs Leanne Sercombe. The story she chose is all about the success that comes to those try their hardest; a very appropriate choice for this talented young writer! Well done Reva! I can’t wait to read more of your work!

Yesterday I had the huge pleasure of attending the Online Celebration Ceremony of the My Story Creation Competition 2020-2021, hosted by my friends at Kids4Kids, and funded by The Community Chest! I was honoured to read out to the attendees the fabulous overall winning story, The Wolf, written and illustrated by Kristi Ng. It’s a fantastic story, with beautiful illustrations in watercolour, crayon and colour pencil. You can see some of the pages from Kristi’s book in the slideshow below. Aren’t they wonderful?

Huge congratulations to the 352 kids who entered from schools and learning centres all over Hong Kong! You can see the list of winners and their work by visiting the competition website here.
