THE WILDLIFE WATCHER



Review in Sun2Surf (Dec 9, 2008)

"The illustrations are simple but vivid water-colour etchings that mesh seamlessly with the prose steeped in rhyme that tells of the fears a young girl has of "a strange wind" that threatens to "sweep across the land and take everything away".
As the bulldozers encroach ever nearer in the name of progress, the little girl must somehow find the courage and strength to cope with the imminent changes and "stand up for what’s right".
Choong has artfully drawn a simple tale of the village chief’s daughter who worries about losing her home and village beside the swamp and the creatures who live in it.
Kudos to the author for another delightful story in verse. Her first picture book, Ah Fu the Rickshaw Coolie, was published last year also by MPH Publishing."

Book read a hit with kids (The Star, May 22, 2009)
