Synopsis:
In Secrets of Singapore, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl uncover the nation’s past, from the time of Sang Nila Utama in 1299 to independence in 1965. But wait, there’s more!

They also investigate intriguing areas seldom found in your history books (shhhh!), like cinemas, airports, sports and of course, food! Join the superhero duo as they unearth fascinating facts like:

Which animals have escaped from the Singapore Zoo?
How long was the very first MRT ride?
Where can you see a tiger car? (And what on earth is a tiger car??)
The answers to these burning questions and much more in Danger Dan and Gadget Girl’s guide to Singapore’s past.

Praise:
“Danger Dan and Gadget Girl have really outsmarted me this time. There are secrets of Singapore that I didn’t even know about! Secrets of Singapore is a comprehensive account of everything Singaporean—from history to politics to transport, education and food—and has fascinating details, interesting commentaries and humorous illustrations. It is a book that should be in every Singaporean kid’s collection.”
—Dr Cheah Yin Mee, partner and consultant, Learning Ventures, council member, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) Singapore

“I wish Danger Dan and Gadget Girl were around to help me with History back when I was in school. Secrets of Singapore will be a boon for those mugging for Social Studies, as it presents facts about the social and cultural history of Singapore in an interesting way, with memorable drawings and illustrations by James Tan.”
—Lim Cheng Tju, Country Editor for the International Journal of Comic Art

“An easy-to-read, interesting book that should appeal to any young reader who wants to find out more about Singapore’s history, and which contains many fun facts that are not commonly known.”
—Lee Siong Boon, history teacher

About the Authors:
Lesley-Anne and Monica Lim are a mother-and-daughter writing team. Lesley-Anne is still in school so she mostly writes essays and papers, which isn’t quite as fun. These days though, she regularly appears at writers’ sessions and interviews, the latest being the Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival.

Monica runs her own writing business at Hedgehog Communications and published a book in 2013 titled The Good, The Bad and the PSLE (Epigram Books).

About the Illustrator:
James Tan is an illustrator from Singapore. He likes to create comics and draw stuff, especially animals. He also enjoys doing traditional illustrations using ink and watercolor as there is something more tactile to these media, just like holding a book in your hand. He likes to draw things from his experiences as well as books he read. He enjoys travelling and drawing the new sights and sounds he sees around the world.Synopsis:
