Some while back a young Ukrainian girl, Albina, (I think she's 13. Sorry if I've got this wrong Albina!) wrote to me because she was doing a project about my books for her class work. Some of you readers may know that several of my books are publlished in Ukraine and my wife and I were lucky enough to visit some libraries there in L'viv about three years ago. Well, I sent some information to Albina and she wrote back and then I wrote back and then she wrote back and on it went. I guess we became pen pals.
Recently she wrote to me saying that she had managed to get her whole class to do a project about my books and I am showing some photos below. You can see that they seem to be very interested in the fact that I used to put the jam in doughnuts! One girl even has a doughnut stitched onto her jumper. It looks like they had a good time with the project. Well done, Albina and class! Thank you for all your work. I hope you had a lot of fun too.
Here is Albina (with glasses on her head) and her friend Olga (with doughnut on her jumper).
