Jack and Jill at Bukit Timah Hill
Illustrated by Twisstii
Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To find the Monkey Man;
Jack fell down, and claimed he was ill,
And left Jill without a plan.
Gwen Lee has taken traditional nursery rhymes and given them a Singaporean twist, adding local humour and flavour to many classics like Little Boy Blue, Jack and Jill and I Had a Little Nut Tree.
