    Dear Ms.Wong,

    Thank you for coming to Island School and coming to talk to us. I found that your explanation and description of many of the things you talked about were very good. I learnt a lot today about what inspires your writing and helps you to write. I really liked what you told us about writing and how I loved the extracts from your book.

    • And I am also very impressed by your imagination and books you have read. It’s my pleasure to visit your school. Wish you all the best in your studies!

    Dear Ms. Wong,

    I’ve just read your poem ‘A metallic bit in your tongue’ — which I loved — and was wondering what ‘Boxer’s story’ referred to. I would greatly appreciate your response ^^
