    See the world from the inquisitive eye of a child. A perfect series for bedtimeĀ reading.

    Jack is cheeky and curious and lives in an old Peranakan-style house in Singapore. He is interested in all people, especially the old people. One day he hears some odd noises while going to the supermarket with Mama. Whoooosh! Prrrahhp! Bssshhh! He then sees old people zooming forward. What is happening? Mama explains he is hearing gas escaping...and that gives Jack an idea.

    Mamaā€™s unconventional approach to her sonā€™s curious nature will tickle readers young and old.

  • "Very fresh and very personal. A mother sharing secrets with her sonā€”and with the reader at the same time."
    ā€”James Lee, author of the bestsellingĀ Mr Midnight and Mr MysteryĀ series

    "I love her series, the illustration is very pretty and attractiveā€¦The story is very meaningful and it teaches children things we donā€™t really touch on."
    ā€”Sato, kindergarten teacher, Mindchamps @ Raffles Town Club.

    ā€œMy twin Aksel insisted on reading the 'fart book', as it is now called in my house. Both boys read along and corrected me when I did not get the soundsĀ correctā€”hilarious! I think it will be read many more times before bedtime."
    ā€”Anna Bervander, founder of Lagom Kids

    "At the parent-teacher meeting, the teacher told me that the children loved the books. Easy to read on their own and the illustrations are very well done. After reading the children kept asking if they would grow old and what would happen to them."
    ā€”Adeline Tan, mother of a 5-year-old son and illustratorĀ 

    "Jai loved it the first time I read to him. He saw himself (only child, loves trains and TV) and asked me to readĀ Will I Grow Old?Ā the second night because he loves tickles too!"
    ā€”Mummy BaoĀ
