Written by Tan Ter Cheah  |  Illustrated by Nuo

Tessie has lost a leg to a bad, bad illness called “cancer”. She can no longer play her favourite games with her friends at school. Strangers keep staring because she looks different. Tessie is tired of being strong and brave. Will she ever be able to walk again? Can she pick herself up and go on? Discover how flamingos, family and a whole lot of fishballs cheer Tessie on, as she copes with the loss of her leg and learns to laugh again.

Ter Cheah writes with a humour and lightness that makes One really accessible and heartening.
