Whoopie Lee: Almost Famous (book 1)
Illustrated by Stephanie Wong
With Amos struggling to keep up with studies in secondary school, he has less time to serve as a toilet diarist.
That’s where his sister Whoopie (infamously known as WPI) steps in. Her diary is different. She doesn’t follow any rule of thumb. She writes what she wants, when she wants, how she wants. From dabbling in playwriting to training the World’s First Human Poodle, Whoopie Lee will stop at nothing to prove that she is more talented than her brother!
What did Amos call her—Whiny, Pesky and Irritating? No, never, she’s going to set the record straight.
