Jack and Jill at Bukit Timah Hill
- About the Author
🎁Recommended for ages 3 and above
Illustrated by Twisstii
Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To find the Monkey Man;
Jack fell down, and claimed he was ill,
And left Jill without a plan.
Gwen Lee has taken traditional nursery rhymes and given them a Singaporean twist, adding local humour and flavour to many classics like Little Boy Blue, Jack and Jill and I Had a Little Nut Tree.
Trained as an architect in the UK, Gwen Lee is one of the few interdisciplinary writers straddling the fields of architecture and literature. Her first children’s book was Little Cloud Wants Snow! She also wrote two nursery rhyme collections told with a Singaporean flavour—There Was a Peranakan Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, published in 2014, followed by Jack and Jill at Bukit Timah Hill a year later. Gwen is a recipient of the National Arts Council's inaugural Arts Creation Fund and the winner of its Beyond Words Young and Younger initiative.
