Amos Lee and family were off on their first family holiday ever, to Seoul, South Korea! But everyone was caught up in their own thing: Dad kept checking his work emails. Mum and Grandma were chasing down K-pop stars. Whoopie only cared about growing long eyelashes. And Everest was set to win a Choco Pie eating contest.
As for Amos, he just wanted to win the Instagram Prize for Popular Youth! But when Grandpa went missing, the family holiday became a living nightmare. Grandpa was lost in a city of TEN MILLION people—how were they going to find him?
PRAISE FOR THE DIARY OF AMOS LEE SERIES
“The diary becomes in many ways a peep into Singapore.” – The Indian Express
“What started as random rants in a toilet has now become the inspiration for a new children’s book.” – The Straits Times
“From school to market, everything is familiar but fresher from a precocious child’s point of view, and the illustrations are quirky and cute. A clever idea and a pleasurable read.” – Lifestyle
“It has delightful local flavour, humour, sketches and even unwanted comments from Mom (who corrects his spelling,
of course) and Dad. It introduces uniquely Singaporean sights and sounds like the kopi lingo used at coffeeshops…” – Young Parents
