Maybe it was the Xpat-factor.  I can't tell you.  But this story has resonated with many kids in Hong Kong and the US.  As a trailing spouse living in Hong Kong for 7 years I felt compelled to publish this book.  It has been well received at book readings, bookstores, online and through newspaper and radio interviews

 

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT?

Everybody loves a contest.  The thrill of competing in something that may earn you a prize is exciting!  In this little kingdom, King Sow, the young ruler, decrees a Special Contest.  What is different about this contest is that the prize is a secret!  The three main characters, Page Sheep, Lady Spider and Peddler Fox decide to enter the contest anyway.  Each has to search within to find out what they can give.  They have their doubts, but determine their strengths.  Well, all, except Peddler Fox.  He has other ideas. They each find out what the Special Secret Prize is, according to the contribution they make. In the end, a vital life lesson is learned.

“The Contest” reminds me of the classical stories I read as a child. I have this book in my pre-school classroom and the children enjoy it every time it’s read. They enjoy looking at the illustrations and hearing of the three main characters’ discoveries about themselves. As a teacher, this book enables me to introduce the importance that everyone has a unique talent.

BLOG: TRAILWALKER FOR WITHU.ORG

I went on a journey.

There was disillusionment.  Disgruntlement.  Discouragement.  But truly, what's lasted is the Triumph, Exuberance and Freedom.  I wrote this blog for withu.org to chronicle this journey and to invite others to join me.  It still satisfies me to take a stroll in that time.  Let's enjoy it again...
