Ubin Elephant

Straits Times Press

Regular price $14.95 SGD

Is there an elephant on Pulau Ubin? Everyone gets a fright when Ubin Elephant turns up, swiping some bananas here and gobbling some rambutans there.

Where did it come from?

Where is it hiding?

And how will it find its way home?

This delightful tale, written by Alan John and illustrated by Quek Hong Shin, was inspired by the true story of an elephant that appeared on Pulau Ubin in 1991 and caused great excitement among the island’s residents for about a week.

Beautifully and vividly illustrated, this book will enthrall young readers with the question of how to get poor little Ubin Elephant (frightened and shedding a tear at one point!) safely home to his mama again.
The book includes information about the real-life elephant appearance in 1991 and facts about elephants.

Alan John and Quek Hong Shin’s previous collaboration, The One and Only Inuka, about the Singapore Zoo’s much-loved polar bear, won the POPULAR People’s Choice Award 2019 for the Best Children’s Book in English.
