Do you have a passion for reading? Do you want to meet the authors? Asia Society Hong Kong Center and Kids4Kids are now bringing you Young Adventurers’ Book Club, a children friendly program that welcome children and parents. Once a month, a children’s book author and a student ambassador will share a book with you. Everyone is welcome to engage with interesting discussion questions, and more!
Let’s explore the magical world of reading!
A Dirty Story brings together the inhabitants of the towns of Neat and Grot. As their names suggest, the inhabitants of Neat take pride in their appearance and keep tidy, well ordered houses. In contrast, the town of Grot is untidy, dirty and inhabited by scruffy people. On the eve of the annual Cleanest Town Competition, the Neats and the Grots take what they consider to be necessary measures to secure success. The outcome is both amusing and educational for children.
Illustrated by Harry Harrison, the cartoonist of SCMP since 2001. Harry collaborates with Sarah on children’s books, including the series of Chinese Calendar Tales. Harry has won many awards for his work including top Editorial Cartooning recognition at the Society of Publishers in Asia Editorial Awards 2012 and special prize for a body of work at the Hong Kong 14th Human Rights Press Awards.
SARAH BRENNAN is the much-loved Hong Kong author of the best-selling Chinese Calendar Tales, and many other children’s books. Her books are funny, fabulous, and designed to get kids learning while they laugh!
