Night in the Gardens
About the Book
Mei tossed and turned. She could not sleep; the night was too dark.
Then she heard a gentle whisper. It was Adventurous Andy!
Together, on the back of a giant kingfisher, they explore the mesmerising scenes of the Gardens by the Bay at night. As she takes in the beauty of the lights, Mei realises that the night isn’t so dark and frightening after all!
