Singapore Children's Favorite Stories is a collection of eleven stories that provide an insight into the traditional culture and history of Singapore. Retold by Diane Taylor for an international audience, the whimsical watercolor illustrations by Lak-Khee Tay-Audouard offer insight into Singapore's multicultural past and present, as well as its colonial roots.

Magical princesses, mermaids, tigers, pirates and buffalos compete for every child's attention.
