She performed for the students and parents of our Dutch school and for all the students in Year 4, 5, 6 and 7. Tosca is world famous in The Netherlands, Belgium and now in China too with her books about Dummie the Mummy, an ancient mummy boy that was hit by lightning and  woke up. In her entertaining show she taught us how to use your fantasy in creating stories by giving the example of her granny’s false teeth that went walkabout at night time. She also told us about a very ‘interesting’ experiment your children might want to tell you the details about… just make sure they don’t tell you at the dinner table. Tosca’s work is translated in several languages, including English, German, Spanish and Chinese and she kindly donated some books to our school library. It was great to have Tosca around and we are looking forward to reading her amazing books.
