The World Famous Diaries of Amos Lee: 10th Anniversary 4-in-1 Edition
- About the Author & Illustrator
Children can now read the first four of Amos Lee’s hilarious diaries (with a new look!) in one collection.
Amos Lee is famous for the wrong reasons: he is the first boy in the world to write his diary on the toilet. In this series, Amos and his best friends confront a bully at school, he enters a tween idol contest and enlists his sister WPI (Whiny, Pesky and Irritating) to help, and he gets really, really famous...on TV!
This award-winning, bestselling series has been translated into several languages and adapted into a television show since it debuted in 2009. Now a new generation of young readers will be introduced to the young diarist.
"From school to market, everything is familiar but fresher from a precocious child’s point of view, and the illustrations are quirky and cute. A clever idea and a pleasurable read."
"If you liked Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you'll love Amos Lee."
"It has delightful local flavour, humour, sketches and even unwanted comments from Mum (who corrects his spelling, of course)."
—Wong Siow Yuen, Young Parents
"I loved the spunky Amos and the way the book is written, not to mention the awesome illustrations."
—Preeti Shenoy, author of Life Is What You Make It
"The diary becomes in many ways a peep into Singapore."
—The Indian Express
"Amos is a character who can 'travel', and insert himself with cheeky ease into parallel childhoods everywhere."
"The Diary of Amos Lee books have enriched my boy's life and given him buckets of laughter. He relates to the spunky and true-to-life character."
—Busy Mom's Busy Blog
"My son enjoyed the book so much that he finished reading the book within a day... Parents, if you are trying to cultivate good reading habits of your children, try this book."
