Ubin Elephant

Written by Alan John  |  Illustrated by Quek Hong Shin

Is there an elephant on Pulau Ubin? Everyone gets a fright when Ubin Elephant turns up, swiping some bananas here and gobbling some rambutans there.

Where did it come from?

Where is it hiding?

And how will it find its way home?

This delightful tale, written by Alan John and illustrated by Quek Hong Shin, was inspired by the true story of an elephant that appeared on Pulau Ubin in 1991 and caused great excitement among the island’s residents for about a week.
