KIDLIT SG NEW BOOKS 2022 _____ Presenting ROMANCE OF THE THREE KINGDOMS – STRATEGIES AND RUSES by Pauline Loh, about some really awesome heroes

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

Book Title: Romance of the Three Kingdoms – Strategies and Ruses

Launch Date: November 15

Synopsis: Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang fought many wars. However, they did not have surveillance drones and binoculars to spy on the enemy. Radios and telephones had not been invented yet, so they could not even communicate with their own soldiers. How did they even manage to organise a war, much less win it? They do it with their intelligence and quick thinking! Read about their strategies and ruses in Book Three of the series!

Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a retelling of the famous Chinese classic of the same name, as part of the Pop! Lit for Kids series published by World Scientific Education.

Pauline's thoughts on writing the series: I had so much fun binge-reading and watching movies about Sanguo, or Romance of the Three Kingdoms. When questioned, I could say with a serious expression, "I'm doing research!"  I love artist Patrick Yee's reimagination of the three brothers-- Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei. These men are 英雄好汉 (yīng xióng hǎo hàn) - heroes!  

Let's celebrate all these
wonderful new releases
