The Diary of Amos Lee: Lights, Camera, Superstar! (book 4)
Illustrated by Stephanie Wong
When his diaries are stolen and published, Amos thinks his world is coming to an end. But what he doesn’t realise is that he’s going to become really famous! Adoring fan mail, girls throwing themselves at his feet and, with 5,000 friends on Facebook, yes… FINALLY! Life looks to be turning around!
But when a TV Director offers to adapt his diaries into a TV show, Amos learns that a new boy will take over from him in becoming Singapore’s Most Famous Toilet Diarist! Filled with insane jealousy and a desire to right a wrong, Amos vows to do all that he can to stop the show. But will he succeed?
“From school to market, everything is familiar but fresher from a precocious child’s point of view, and the illustrations are quirky and cute. A clever idea and a pleasurable read.”
—Tan Shee Lah, Lifestyle
“It has delightful local flavour, humour, sketches and even unwanted comments from Mom (who corrects his spelling, of course) and Dad. It introduces uniquely Singaporean sights and sounds like the Kopi lingo used at coffeeshops…”
—Wong Siow Yuen, Young Parents
“The latest instalment in this popular series, written in an appealing diary format. Local readers can identify with characters who, like themselves, have grown up”
—The Sunday Times
