Full of whimsy, this funny and fun-loving caper celebrates the wildlife of Singapore.
The animals of Singapore are under threat! So Alpha Macaque and his troop embark on a daring adventure to rewrite the Constitution. When that plan fails, Dung Beetle establishes a smelly enterprise, and Pink Dolphin has ideas of his own. Species large and small take centre stage in this charming picture book that advocates conservation and childlike wonder.
“The story is fascinating and endearing. The author has so beautifully weaved in wonderful messages into the story and I believe the book can foster children’s compassion for animals and nature to be more appreciative of them. Both children and adults would love reading this!”
—Jayaprakash Bojan, National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year 2017
