Product description

About the Author

Dr Mohamed (Mo) Dirani is a world leading expert on myopia, or short-sightedness. At age 26, Mo earned his PhD with the world’s largest twin study on myopia in Australia. His research showed that the environment can influence the development of myopia even in twins who share 100 per cent of their genes. In 2009, Mo led a national study on myopia in Singapore, which confirmed that myopia can occur in very young children, putting them at risk of developing sight-threatening myopia later in life. Therefore, early prevention is important. The Professor Plano Clear Vision Recipe is strongly based on this science. Today, Mo heads plano Pte Ltd, a company with a single mission to help families all over the world manage device use and myopia. Hwee Goh is a MediaCorp scholar who spent 16 years in political broadcast news, and is the author of Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s Wildlife Wonders and Singapore’s Sports Stars. She is also a communications professional who teaches media skills and provides editorial support to companies at The Media Consultants Singapore. However, her lifelong job is reading, and promoting reading. She is the non-commercial micro-influencer who runs Facebook Page, Hwee’s Book Share Club, from whence she gets her deep experience interacting with like-minded parents on all things books. About the Illustrator David Liew is the talented illustrator behind the highly successful ten-book Ellie Belly series, that has sold 100,000 copies and which has been translated into a few languages. Dave also created Squirky of the five-book Squirky series, which won the SCWBI Crystal Kite Award 2016 for book 4. In 2014, he wrote and illustrated his own book, Nightmare on Eat Street, funded by the National Arts Council. Dave is currently the Regional Advisor to the Singapore Chapter of the International Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, although he spent his younger years as a history and art lecturer. Dave also spends his time as a sculptor at the Sleeping Iron Foundry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome buy !!! book of 1 “Trouble in Murktown” of 5 (The Plano Adventures)
Reviewed in the United States on 10 March 2020
I ordered the whole series of “The plano adventures” (Book 1: Trouble in Murktown, Book 2: The Ray Keepers, Book 3: The Never Ending Game, Book 4: Attack of the Cybugs and Book 5: Out of Order) from Amazon by Hwee Goh and Dr Mo Dirani, illustrations by David Liew. They are fantastic book and story is fascinating. Perfect for young and adults.

It is like a great cook book with awesome pictures and it carves your appetite, make you want immediately dash into kitchen and start cooking. The ingredients (the contents is marvelous!) and accompanying the vibrant pictures (doodle illustrations almost every page!) explains the message need to deliver. You won’t be able to put it down until you get to the last page. You won't be disappointed!!! I will recommend to everyone, families, schools, libraries, churches to have a set of this Hwee books (book 1-5) and other books for reading pleasure.

Well done, can't wait for the next set/series or other books to be available....I know what to get for all my great grand nieces and nephews or kids on the block for this Christmas now!!! Thank you, Hwee, Dr Mo and David.
