In March, we kicked off The Adventures of Squirky the Alien #3: Who is the Red Commander? with events at Books Kinokuniya.

In April, we popped by KL for an OrphanCARE event (where there was a Squirky storytelling session) and got a Squirky tattoo while at it!

With Lillian, who helps with marketing for MPH Group Publishing in Malaysia.

In May, we had a pretty exuberant time with the kids at Bukit Timah Reading Club!

Random aside: MPH Singapore also came up with this super cool spaceship craft that was a big hit at all the Book 3 events. For Buddy, it became his default car entertainment.

In June, Squirky also made an appearance at the Asian Festival of Children’s Content. It was lovely to see our books being sold at the festival bookstore thanks to Closetful of Books. But more importantly, I learned a lot from the much more experienced authors there. In particular, Sally Murphy gave some invaluable advice on writing tough topics for children.

Illustrator David Liew’s other book (for more grown-up children, which he also wrote) is just below the Squirky books.

Squirky also made a cameo appearance at the Superhero Me Festival last month.We did a pretty improvisational choose-your-own-Squirky-adventure art jam and it was super fun!

Next up: Will be telling you more about The Adventures of Squirky the Alien #4: Where is My Mama?
