Our friends at APD have advised that they have local children’s authors available for school visits at no charge. What an opportunity!
One such author is Maranna Chan, creator of the Triple Nine Sleuths series. Triple Nine Sleuths is targeted at upper primary to lower secondary students (ages 10-14).
The series follows the adventures of Secondary One students Corey, Colton and Stacy as they encounter and investigate a series of intriguing mysteries in their neighbourhood and around Singapore. As they search for answers, big secrets are revealed and surprising connections are drawn between old cases. Think Nancy Drew or Enid Blyton’s classic Secret Seven series, but with a fresh, local twist: familiar locations like Serangoon Public Library, Nex mall and even St John’s Island, and tech-savvy leads who use their smartphones and Facebook to aid them in their sleuthing missions.
