The Travel Diary of Amos Lee 2: Monkeying in Malaysia!
Shortlisted for Best Young Adults' Title for Singapore Book Awards 2016
Illustrated by Stephanie Wong
Shortlisted for the Hedwig Anuar Children’s Book Award 2015
After a successful fundraising effort, I was off to Sarawak, Malaysia with my bros Alvin and Anthony for an exciting jungle trek! And, more importantly, I’d get to see my dear friend Jolin. (Mum calls her the “object of my infatuation”.)
Our guide, Jolin’s weird “jungle man” Uncle Jufri, warned us to never let our guard down, for the rainforest is full of secrets and surprises. After getting drenched in a thunderstorm, and some icky encounters with mussels, toads, leeches and ants, we thought we’d seen and survived it all. But then there were those footprints, BIGGER THAN A HUMAN’S, that just couldn’t be explained.
