  1. Dear Gabrielle,

    Thank you so much for visiting our school and speaking to us about how you get your inspiration for writing, your writing process and for showing us how to draw Peng. We also loved the pictures of your dogs!

    We can’t wait to read some more of your books. Some of us are going to see if we can find The Wishbird on the weekend

    Happy writing,
    SPAN Middle School

    1. Thank you for a lovely visit SPAN Middle School. I love your drawings of Peng. I really like the way your classes are in one giant space. It made me want to be a child again so I could go to your school.
      Keep up the great reading, writing and illustrating!

    1. Hi Sherlin,

      I really enjoyed coming to your school.
      At the moment I’m writing a new Our Australian Girl about a girl called Pearlie who lives in Darwin during World War Two. The black cocker spaniel is named Hero. The golden is Saffy.

  4. Dear Gabrelie wang,

    how did you get the idea of writing so much books
    i hope your hand dos not heart
    for a while have fun?

    1. Dear Lol

      Ideas are all around us. Sometimes I just clap my hands and an idea will come to my mind. But not all ideas are
      good enough to make a whole novel.

      My hand doesn’t hurt because I use a computer.

    From your best fans ever Isabelle, Maria and Rafaela

    1. Dear Isabelle, Maria and Rafaela,

      I had a wonderful time at your school thank you for having me.

      At the moment I’m working on another Our Australian Girl series and her name is Pearlie. You’ll be able to read the first
      novel in February 2014.

      What wonderful ideas. Thank you. I particularly like The Runaway Hot Air Balloon.

      Carole Wilkinson is a friend. I haven’t heard of Geronimo or Thea Stilton and of course I know of Enid Blyton who was my favourite author
      when I was young.

      Happy Reading!

    From Tiana and Louisa:)

    1. Dear Tiana and Louisa,

      Thank you for writing!
      My latest book The Wishbird is my favourite novel so far. It’s more a fable and I loved doing the illustrations for it.

      I hope you get to read it.
