KIDLIT SG NEW BOOKS 2022 _____ Presenting SING A SONG OF HAWKER FOOD: HUMPTY DUMPTY & FRIENDS HAVE A SINGAPORE HAWKER FEAST by Lianne Ong, featuring nursery rhymes about local hawker food plus AR videos of her and her two co-creators singing these rhymes

NOTE: This post is part of my blog series to celebrate SG kidlit titles released in 2022. More info about this showcase here. All the featured books and authors can be found here


Hi! My name is Lianne and I am a kidlit author. Sing A Song of Hawker Food: Humpty Dumpty & Friends Have a Singapore Hawker Feast is my 16th book.

This is not my first book about Singapore hawker food. I wrote Timmy & Tammy Discover: Singapore Hawker Food some years ago but that was a non-fiction book. I wanted to write a fictional book about hawker food, and I thought a collision of worlds between familiar nursery rhyme characters and our hawker favourites would be funny! Humpty Dumpty eating kaya toast seemed like a good idea, and I hope you think so too.

This is the first time I have written, acted and sung for a book - get the book and you'll see what I mean! Every rhyme links to a video where you will see co-author Janice Khoo, illustrator Chao and I performing the rhyme.
