The Asian Festival of Children’s Content, Singapore, 25th to 30th May this year. The above’s just the Writer/Illustrator bit.
I’m going. Because as most sane people do, I love children’s books.
When I was at the Strand in NYC last year, I pretty much ignored all the adult books and started hunting for Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, and a host of other books that I’ll go into spizzies and featherums about later this week.
Kota Buku‘s snazzy branding with chilli red. Check out their website to see more of said chilli red. Prominently featured. Easy to navigate. Refreshing. Red.
Malaysia’s the featured nation this year. It was the Phillipines, last year. A neat delegation is going to Singapore for this, via Kota Buku. Nice little Causeway exchange.
Reminds me a little of good old Hereford. The Shire. England. Where I spent many a summer. Nearby, Hay-on-Wye has a huge arts and literature fair.
Stuff of dreams.
I actually do want to explain more about how I got involved with all this. It will unfold in time.
I leave you with a secret. Her name is Hsu Lynn Pang. And she is magic.
