Kelly and the Krumps
Winner of the Hedwig Anuar Children’s Book Award 2020
🎁 Recommended for ages 9 and above
In his second wonderfully whacky children’s novel, Ken Kwek takes a hard—and funny—look at teens beset with academic pressures and technology overload.
Kelly Mao has got quite the headache: her tiger mum is threatening to ground her, her tuition timetable barely gives her time to eat, and she suspects her twin brother is up to something. On top of everything, the PSLE is looming!
When the pressure gets too intense, Kelly decides to secretly join a dance crew called the Krumps, but slowly she gets entangled in her brother’s troubles with an evil genius named Fang Boy.
About the Author
Ken Kwek is a filmmaker, playwright and author. He has a passable sense of rhythm but cannot dance due to torn knee ligaments and a fear of freestylin'. He also doesn't want to offend the eyes of hip-hop fans. Kelly and the Krumps is his second children's novel, after the bestselling Timothy and the Phubbers.
