Doesn’t this look a tad familiar? Remember those Ladybird books your parents used to foist on you to get you to read? Okay, maybe this only applies to those of us who grew up in the 80s. Anyway, Casey Chen pays homage and parody to our literary initiation by spinning it Singlish. Inspired by our formative fairy tales, these locally-written and illustrated works remind us of our kinda-nice-kinda-hilarious hybrid culture, as well as celebrates it unabashedly. So put a Singlish spin on your child’s literary life today… but best to keep some Ladybird books in there as well, though.
