On the surface, it looks like a typical children’s book exhibition but there is more than meets the eye.

On the first day of the fiesta, author David Seow and illustrator Soefara Jafney (Return To The S.E.A. Aquarium), and actor-turned-illustrator Edmund Chen (My Little Red Dot) made special appearances.

Another marine display that attracts many “oohs” and “ahs” is the school of ‘Nemo’ clown fishes hovering around sea anemones.

On display is a humongous shelf of more than 10,000 donated books. Doing their part for charity, the RWS and People’s Association organised a book donation drive to collect books from members of public earlier this year. All books will be distributed to children from low income families across Singapore.

With an entrance fee of just $3 per child (inclusive of a $25 goodie bag) and $6 per adult (inclusive of $5 voucher which can be used to offset the price of books), you’re in for a fun-filled treat at Imagine|Native fest.
