The Diary of Amos Lee by
Call Number: FOO
Amos Lee is a 9-year-old character created by Adeline Foo, the protagonist of a new children’s book documenting life in Singapore, written in the form of a journal. A local version of “The Diary of Adrian Mole”, The Journal of Amos Lee captures Amos’ reflections of quirky school life and his edgy relationship with a neurotic mum, a patriotic Po-Po, an Elvis-impersonator Ah Kong and a complaint-fearing civil servant dad. Against the backdrop of Amos’ writing spanning one year, Singapore’s proud achievements and world class feats are also talked about, although Amos being nine, will have his own opinion on why some of these “feats” are not things to shout about, like Singapore’s first night race contributing to global warming, or Singapore being No. 1 in Meatball Consumption in IKEA’s chain of outlets worldwide
