I’m over the moon and beaming over the shiny news from the 2021 Moonbeam Awards results!

My Little Series picture books – Little Godwit Finds His Wings/Little Mole’s Awesome Star/Little Mimic’s Superpower – has been awarded Best Picture Book Series (Silver Medal) at the 2021 US-based Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards!

Our Little Series, which I conceived and was illustrated by the talented illustrator John Lim, has been a precious collaboration. And it happened with the wonderful support of our publisher Marshall Cavendish Children and our editor Lydia.

I will be beaming for a while!

My Little Series picture books – Little Godwit Finds His Wings/Little Mole’s Awesome Star/Little Mimic’s Superpower – are available in the bookstores, on Amazon (online overseas) and Times Bookstores (online local).

It is such a blessed treat to see my story with Caleb in Straits Times Life today!

I had involved Caleb in brainstorming ideas last year when publisher World Scientific approached me to write a kids’ travel series set in Asia.

In today’s Straits Times Life (26 April 2021)

“…When she was trying to think up a name for the main character, the boy suggested Polo, after “that famous traveller Marco Polo”…”

My other new release Little Mimic’s Superpower was also featured – it is the third book in my Little series.

“Through facts about unusual animals featured in her titles, she wants to encourage readers to uncover one’s own unique traits…She struggled with a rare voice disorder, Spasmodic Dysphonia, for more than 10 years, making her voice “unique”…

For years, I found it hard to give up my job…because I was afraid that without a corporate suit, I wouldn’t have a place in the world…It was only after letting go of my job that I grew in my Christian faith, which led to a new voice writing children’s books…”

I’m so grateful to journalist Elisa Chia for reaching out to me to write this feature story and arranging my precious first mum-and-son photoshoot!
