About the Book

The Adventures of Mooty was first published in 1980 as a collection of 10 stories. The series depicts the adventures of a loveable little mouse who endears himself to a community of animals, birds and insects, and becomes their hero. Four decades on, Mooty continues to charm the young and young-at-heart alike with his extraordinary magic, and the stories, presented in an all-new comic book format, will appeal to a whole new generation of readers. In this edition, Jessie shares her thoughts and inspirations behind each endearing story — some revealed for the very first time — giving readers greater insight into her writing, and making Mooty ever more real.

About the Author

Jessie Wee is one of the most prominent writers for children in Singapore. She was a teacher for 12 years before a chance encounter with a little button-eyed mouse in her kitchen started her writing stories out of a conviction that “children in Singapore need stories they can identify with, stories they can call their own”. In the course of her writing career, Jessie has written more than 30 books for children, three of which have won awards from the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS). In 2013, Jessie was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Children’s Literature by the NBDCS, recognising her outstanding and significant contribution as a writer.
