Marky Polo is a pangolin who comes from a famous line of travellers and explorers. His cousin Merry Polo is visiting Singapore for the first time. Merry wants a holiday packed with non-stop fun and merry-making. Can Merli and his friends help Marky to occupy his fun-loving (and sometimes inconsiderate) younger cousin?
In Marky Polo in Singapore, Merli and his friends play tourist guides to Marky Polo’s cousin Merry Polo who visits Singapore for the first time. Young Merry Polo wants a holiday packed with non-stop fun and merry making. Merli enlists the assistance of his friends – Jewel the hornbill, Chomp Chomp the crocodile, Marina the otter, and D65 the Unidentified Flying Durian – who take turns to introduce Merry to Singapore through its key attractions, from an indoor waterfall and cooled conservatories to adrenaline-filled family-friendly experiences, food centres and cultural precincts. As the most fun-loving, and sometimes most inconsiderate Polo in Marky’s family, Merry Polo gives everyone the run-around till she finally learns to be more thoughtful to others.
Readers can scan selected pages of the book which takes them to curated videos and websites on Singapore’s attractions and fun information on Singapore’s local wildlife, including the pangolin, a scaly anteater native to Singapore and the region. Singapore’s culture and street art are also woven into this fun and meaningful story that celebrates all things about Singapore. This series comes with Augmented Reality features which bring the city to life and adds a new dimension to reading.
