This colorfully illustrated multicultural children's book presents Singaporean fairy tales and other folk stories—providing insight into a rich literary and oral culture.

Singapore Children's Favorite Stories is a collection of eleven stories that provide an insight into the traditional culture and history of Singapore. They make perfect new additions for story time or bedtime reading. Retold by Diane Taylor for an international audience, the whimsical watercolor illustrations by Lak-Khee Tay-Audouard offer insight into Singapore's multicultural past and present, as well as its colonial roots. The famous story of the tiger under the billiard table at the Raffles Hotel is retold, as is the myth of how the name "Singapore" (Lion City) came about. Magical princesses, mermaids, tigers, pirates and buffalos compete for every child's attention.

Singapore Children's Stories include:
  • Queen of the Forest
  • Vanished!
  • The Pirates of Riau
  • The Magical Princess
