I had a great trip to Melbourne ﬁnally meeting with the author Roland Perry. What a charming man he is. He has agreed to be my friend and help me with my novel when time permits him. I was complimented by him, with his saying I was "a very good story teller".
The children of all three schools I read my stories to were amazing. I give away books to those students that answer my questions correctly at the end of the story. Not one student gave a wrong answer, so they either enjoyed every part of Peppi the Polo Pony, or they listened so as to win a book. I like to think it's the ﬁrst reason. I can't tell you how rewarding this is and also conﬁrm with you, our next generation are coming along just ﬁne.
