If you read Chinese are you in for a treat!   8 comments

Great news! My first book, ‘Getting Out – Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary,’ which has been regularly described as a masterpiece of feline literature, is currently being translated into Chinese! Yes I know, how about that? And after all of the dreadful menu and sign translations I’ve published. The Chinese have obviously forgiven me and decided that they love the book and want everyone to read it.

I have to say I want everyone in China to read it too, because there are loads of potential customers bless them.

First page of my book in Chinese

You do think that the Chinese have forgiven me for things like this…

A place to be alone Hong Kong

… and they aren’t just kidding me and printing some awful jumbled version of my book? They wouldn’t do that to me would they, I’m nice and cuddly and have wonderful teeth and whiskers, ok my breath smells a bit fishy and burp… my table manners leave something to be desired but I am nice, honest!

Oh I thought of a title for the picture above!

“A place to be alone Hong Kong!” Har ha!

I’m done for aren’t I?

  1. Oh this is fantastic news for you! Congratulations to you.

    • Thank you. I have been working away with the Chinese for quite a while now and slowly but surely we are getting there. Fingers crossed that it goes forward, a million and one things could go wrong of course. I might for instance be on someone lunch menu over there, they are a bit unpredictable. But my Chinese agent is great, we are also working on using some of their loose change to put together a movie, they have a lot of it, but they don’t like waiting for long investments and as you know an animated movie would take at least two years which is a long time for them!

  2. Awesome! There are definitely quite a few potential customers there, so I do hope they’ve forgiven you and aren’t playing tricks.

    • Thanks. I too hope that they have forgiven me for all of the dreadful things I have said in the past and, sadly because I can’t keep my paws off the keyboard which is the equivalent of keeping my mouth shut, in the future!

      It’s possible that there is a movie deal behind the publication, but these things take time as you know, we will see, in the meantime I’m keeping my four feet firmly on the ground and resisting the temptation to corner the market in derivative Prawns! Tee hee!

  3. Excellent news!! I’m glad you mentioned ‘lunch menu’ yourself, I would have felt rather naughty to have brought that up!!

    • The news is great and I have to say I am rather pleased too. Still a long way to go but we’ll see what happens. You are too nice to have brought up lunch or a menu! :0)
