China book tour!

I’ve recently returned from a fantastic tour of China, talking about books and story-telling at international schools in Shanghai and Beijing. It was my first visit to China, and it won’t be my last.  Both cities were amazing! Between school visits I managed to get out to the countryside to hike part of the Great Wall, where I was also secretly researching a new project…

I was so impressed with the students at the schools I visited, and their enthusiasm for story telling. They came up with some fairly crazy ideas in the story telling workshops. Below are a few pictures from the events. The lovely librarian at Harrow School in Beijing also sent me this kind quote, which makes me very happy:

‘Rob was brilliant, both staff and students had nothing but good things to say about him and his presentation. He talked about how he became a writer in a very amusing way and his inspiration for his latest book. He was super accommodating and very flexible.’
