Janice Khoo Lianne Ong

The worlds of nursery rhymes and Singapore hawker food collide in this book. Dive into fractured nursery rhymes with a local twist, featuring Singapore hawker food. Imagine Humpty Dumpty enjoying kaya toast, Jack and Jill grilling satay on a hill and the three blind mice eating chicken rice at the hawker centre. Wouldn't that be a funny sight?

Storytelling highlights: 
  • Storytelling + singalong
  • Short quiz
