I absolutely believe that this wonderful children’s book is not just for children. We old people can also learn a lot from it. Great thing for kids and adults. Thank you very much Dr.

I think these are excellent observations by Dr Perkins, who is a well-known and admired poet and writer. She was one of the organisers of the Festival, which was a big success.
