Photos taken at Festival Dongeng Internasional Indonesia 2017, Indonesia's storytelling festival featuring both local and international storytellers. Francois and his wife Karina, had the opportunity to sell books and Arts and Crafts products under the brand of Kreative Keo (www.kreativekeo.weebly.com)
The video below was taken at Starbright Family Learning Centre's Fund Day and Open House on 31st October 2017 (Halloween). Francois, dressed as Frankenstein told his story, "The Junglies haunt a Castle" from his book, "The Junglies Collection 2" on the day. Some of the children were afraid at first but happy and full of smiles after they realised Francois isn't really green!
