Secrets of Singapore: Botanic Gardens
Written by Lesley-Anne and Monica Lim
Illustrated by Elvin Ching
In Secrets of Singapore: Botanic Gardens, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl go out on a limb to uproot the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ deepest, darkest secrets.
Within the lush grounds, the superhero duo find a tree so famous that its portrait can be found in any Singaporean’s wallet, as well as an orchid older and taller than any human alive. Flying back 140 years into the past, they also discover that the Botanic Gardens used to be home to a mixed bag of critters, including a tapir who dreamed of being a rock. Not a rock star. Just a rock. #achievablegoals
There’s more! Danger Dan and Gadget Girl realise that the botanical world is more twisted than they think. As it turns out, strawberries are only pretending to be berries, tomatoes can’t decide whether they are fruits or vegetables, and sunflowers are really evil at heart.
Trek through the Singapore Botanic Gardens with Danger Dan and Gadget Girl. You will never look at your plant pals the same way again!
