“The books are written in a non-technical, easy-to-read language that appeals to a wide spectrum of readers. The stories creatively provide insights to the 'misbehaving' child's inner thoughts, the caregivers' struggles managing the 'misbehaviours' and the typical responses from people around because of a lack of understanding of what brings on the 'misbehaviours'. In essence, the books offer caregivers and friends new lenses to relate to a child who is not conducting himself in a socially acceptable way, as well as appreciate that they can do something to help the child.”
—Sue Cheng, Singapore Children's Society
