Hong Kong Writers Circle podcast Episode 19: Cat Soup

 

In this episode Jane Houng introduces her children's book, Cat Soup and Other Short Stories. She discusses the development of the three chapter books that make up the collection and how they were tailored to a Hong Kong context.

Following that is the second of the four-part panel discussion with Jane, Simon, Reena Bhojwani and Blair Reeve on books they consider to be excellent examples of children's literature and what writers can learn from them. In this episode they discuss The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch.
