Take a play­ful trip down mem­ory lane in The HouseonPalmerRoad, a chil­dren’s book that chron­i­cles the child­hood of Sing, an eight-year-old girl liv­ing in pre-war Sin­ga­pore.

It’s writ­ten by 83-year-old re­tired chem­istry teacher Si-Hoe S.S. – the real Sing – and her daugh­ter, Sim Ee Waun, a vet­eran jour­nal­ist and au­thor of The Lit­tle Sin­ga­pore
