    Look inside the book

    A memorable tale told with playful rhyme, the story will remind both young and old that one should always pay attention to their surroundings. 

    There once was a boy who loved to talk. He talked so much that he didn't even notice when danger was coming! The Boy Who Talked All Day recalls the classic nursery rhymes, and the whimsical illustrations and quirky scenes will amuse and entertain children of all ages.

    Cheong Suet Mei, Shermaine (aka See You See Me) is currently on an illustration journey, which first began while she was working in advertising and design. Her love for form, textures, and colours led her to explore how she could be more creative and bring her ideas to life. Soon, illustration became her outlet to do so. Using a blend of water-soluble colour pencils, pastels, and digital painting, Shermaine hopes to share stories and messages in her illustrations that can brighten one’s day, or leave you with something unexpected—making you go “awww” at the simple joys of everyday life and common scenarios.
