Dream Island: The Mad, Mad World of Philip Yeo
Peh Shing Huei
Illustrated by Lai Hui Li
Philip Yeo was a curious boy who loved to read. He learnt a lot about the world from books, and went to Canada to study. Back in Singapore, he worked for the government and helped create jobs. One day, he gets an idea to combine seven islands into one and build chemical factories on it. Everyone thought it was a crazy idea. But Philip refused to give up.
