Walk on the wild side! Join the exciting sequel to the popular children’s book, The Great Singapore Poo Sale and Other Beastly Business.
Ideal for avid readers aged 9 and up—and for animal lovers and the young at heart everywhere—Make Animals Great Again looks at what happens when the animals have to elect a new leader. There are many candidates, but who will be the best animal for the job? What values should they look for in a leader?
Held at the lobby of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum on 16 Nov at 3pm, the launch will be an afternoon of educational fun for young and old alike! An excerpt from the book will be read by the Players Theatre. There will be an animal trivia quiz where children stand to win animal stickers. National Geographic award-winning wildlife photographer Jayaprakash Bojan will also present some of his best photos and share his experiences.
