We had a crazy day today. First, the big news: Danger Dan book 4 is out! Wahoo! Well, when I say "out", I mean it's fresh from the printers and we've gotten our hands on it. Unfortunately, it will take at least 2 weeks for bookstores to stock them on shelves... just a leetle longer, DD fans!
I think this is our favourite cover yet - both the colour and the design. Here's the lovely Aqilah from Epigram Books with the giant poster.
Don't the book covers look wonderful as a series? Such gorgeous shades!
Earlier this morning, we were at Holy Innocents Primary School to conduct a special Runaway Readers workshop for a class of p3 kids. This workshop was organised by the Singapore Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) as part of an initiative to promote Singapore literature in local schools.
We always enjoy ourselves most when the kids are participative and I have to say, this bunch was the most enthusiastic we've met so far! They were like eager little hamsters and bombarded us with lots of questions ("How did you come up with the name Danger Dan?" "What was your inspiration for the books?" "Which part of the book did you like best?")
Who says local kids aren't creative?
