Singapore Children's Favorite Stories
By

Rating
Until now, there have been few collections of Singapore's legends written and illustrated with children in mind. Author Diana Taylor pulls together eleven beloved myths and tales often shared from mother to child, stories of how Singapore got its name or the time a tiger was found under a billiard table at the Raffles Hotel. These stories introduce children to Singapore's multicultural past and its colonial roots.

About the Author

Diane Taylor is a teacher, writer and consultant on children's literature. She has lived in many different countries during her life so far and is currently based in the UK where she lives with her husband and two sons. Diane spent the first three years of her life living in Singapore and has more recently been back for another five years. "I wanted my children to have a flavor of Singapore's rich heritage. Finding well-illustrated Singapore legends, with language that is accessible to young children, was almost impossible, so I decided to write them myself," she says. For four years she provided the children's book reviews for the Straits Times and is currently working on her collection of children's tales. In her drawings, Lak-Khee Tay-Audouard seeks to recapture the sense of naive innocence that we tend to lose when we all grow up. Her inspiration often comes from nature, and she is happiest working from home. Lak-Khee lives in Singapore with Denis, her French husband, Baobab and Anais, their two teen-aged children and cat, Sally.
