A New Home for Bo Bo and Cha Cha (book 1)
Illustrated by Patrick Yee
Finalist, Crystal Kite Member Choice Awards, Middle East/India/Asia Category
Recommended by the National Library Board, Singapore and Ministry of Communications and Information
Bo Bo and Cha Cha have come to the Mandai Zoo! Bo Bo is excited, but Cha Cha is not. Everything here seems too strange: the other animals, the heat, and the food! Cha Cha wants to leave—until a caring sloth shows her what being home really means.
“This book teaches kids how to be accepting of unfamiliar situations. On top of that, I find it fun to read the speech of Singlish-speaking orang utans, and it is also a chance to discuss the different kinds of English used in Singapore.”
— Tan Keng Yao, My Paper
