Synopsis
Bo Bo and Cha Cha have come to the Mandai Zoo! Bo Bo is excited, but Cha Cha is not. Everything here seems tooĀ strange: the other animals, the heat, and the food! Cha Cha wants to leaveā€”until a caring sloth shows her what beingĀ home really means.

Praise
ā€œThis 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.ā€
ā€”Tan Keng Yao, My Paper
