Hsukung’s fantastic miniature matchbox book “The Matchstick Sister”

March 5 proved to be a very busy day for Hsukung: In the morning, he went to Xinmin Secondary School to conduct a workshop on crafting stories and making simple picture books.


In the afternoon, he gave a lively storytelling session at the Grassroots Book Room and it was heartening to see such an overwhelming response! (The story he told was 好想吃榴梿:好奇心的美妙滋味 [I Want to Eat Durians: A Deliciously Curious Tale])
