Product Description

FROM THE WINNER OF THE SINGAPORE LITERATURE PRIZE

Will Great Grandmother’s birthday wish be fulfilled?

Amelia is a modern, nine-year-old Peranakan Chinese girl. She adores her Great Grandmother whom she nicknamed GGM. GGM has lots of exciting tales to tell her about old Singapore. She takes Amelia to see the site of her old kampung, an attap-thatched village along the Kallang River where she had met Amelia’s famous namesake and aviatrix, Amelia Earhart, the historical Queen of the Sky, in June 1937. GGM is very active and does not behave like a doddering Senior. She started skiing at sixty and wants to do something adventurous for her 90th birthday. But the entire family does not approve.

JOSEPHINE HAS WON LITERARY PRIZES AND AWARDS BOTH IN UK AND SINGAPORE.
