Maxilla - Second Prize Winner, Samsung Kidstime Author's Award 2016

Maxilla is a story about a boy named Reuben who finds a caterpillar in the school garden. Excited by the wriggly creature, he names her Maxilla and decides to keep her as a pet, anticipating that he will have two pets in one when the caterpillar becomes a butterfly. But he soon learns that Maxilla cannot thrive in captivity and might not even survive. He struggles to make a decision. Will Reuben hold on to his newfound pet or will he return Maxilla to her natural habitat?

This is a story about the difficulty of letting go and the need to respect nature and all that is in it. Maxilla was written based on events that happened when Lianne's family was living in California.

Lianne Ong is a children’s author. She stumbled upon writing books for children after several years of being freelance writer. Her first book, Maxilla, is about her son and was published in 2013. She is best known for her series Stacey & the Museums, which features museums in Singapore. Three of her titles have won the Samsung Kidstime Authors Award (Second Prize) in 2015 and 2016. Lianne’s education background is in Southeast Asian Studies and International Relations. She resides in Singapore with her husband and two children, and is very thankful they are happy museum companions.
