Sarah Brennan

Sarah Brennan is the author of the best-selling Chinese Calendar Tales and the Dirty Story series for primary school aged kids. After moving to Hong Kong in 1998, she found her mission as a much-loved children’s author, bringing Chinese history and culture to children everywhere through her funny and educational stories. She is passionate about children’s literacy, and speaks regularly in schools about poetry, how to write stories, and the importance of reading books in the digital age. Her latest book is Storm Whale, an evocative picture book illustrated by the multi-award-winning artist Jane Tanner, which has been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Sarah has a French husband and two daughters, and lives in Hong Kong’s New Territories beside a subtropical nature reserve, visiting schools in Hong Kong, China, South East Asia and Australia on a regular basis.
