Amber is a tomboy who likes to sit with her legs up on the chair. Mother thinks that is very unladylike. She says only Samsui women put their legs up on a chair. To get her way, Amber decides to be a Samsui girl – at least for a day. Samsui Girl follows Amber’s adventures as she learns to look and work like a true Samsui woman. But it was not as easy as she thinks!
In the past few years, local historian/writer Ho Lee-Ling has been busy writing books for children based on Singapore’s rich history. In between writing Samsui Girl, Wayang Girl and Gasing Boy, Lee-Ling was working on commissioned works.
