For a background of why I drew this, click here. And then a few months ago, my colleague from Children’s Library Services asked for contributors for a Storytelling Kit. I showed my colleague the artwork, she liked it, and I agreed to write my own version of the local legend.
The kit has now been published and available for sale to the general public (selling for under SGD$11 and contains other stories all written by NLB librarians). I’ll post my story here, perhaps as a series… if I can get off my procrastinating butt.
