I am very glad to welcome our featured guests here in the blog from January-February as we give love to more local Singaporean/Singapore-based authors and illustrators.
The Pittodrie Pirates! series is perfect for our current reading theme as we look into early reader books or easy reads that transform young children into avid readers.

She is a mother of three young children, who inspired her to begin writing creatively.
