MEET THE AUTHOR

IN HER LIFE, Lai Chow has amassed an uncountable volume of writings about pop culture, art, entertainment and advertising for close to two decades while wearing her journalist hat. She is the creator of National Gallery Singapore's Art for Tinies board book series (2020), Catch Mee If You Can (2022) with Epigram Books, Penguins Eat Pancakes (2022) with Droll Books, Becoming Margaret Leng Tan (2023) with Marshall Cavendish, and more. She is often found sneaking surprise notes to her irrepressible daughter.
