Every Singaporean has a Bookworm Club book stashed away on an old bookshelf. Remember the Bookworm gang: Sam Seng, Mimi, Simone, Fat Ani, Smarty and others? Bet some of you can name all the characters! Why was it so popular? Because it’s super Singaporean and most kids can relate to the scenes in the book about recess time, playing beneath the void deck and buying ice cream from the mama shop.
