The fourth story from
Willy, the green dragon....

Willy takes some time out to reflect on something that’s bothering him. His alone time takes him on an adventure of discovery in Kam Shan Country Park, where he meets the most annoying characters. Or are they just misunderstood?

Pushed to the limits, Willy becomes frustrated and annoyed with the local wildlife.

Willy's adventure takes him into Kam Shan Country Park in Kowloon. He learns all about the construction of the Kowloon reservoir many years ago.

But how did all the monkeys end up in Kowloon? And why are they so angry?

The monkeys are reminded of their history and make sure that everyone else knows why they are so angry.

A story based on true events that highlight the possible dangers of the introduction of non-native species.  

Do you recognise the scenes in the new story?

Book Reviews

Suzanne Younan’s picture books are very popular amongst our students and teachers at our school. Her stories and illustrations are based in Hong Kong, often delivering a powerful message, educating children about topics such as plastic pollution, human habits and how it impacts HK country parks, and dangers of feeding wild animals.   

 

In her third book, TGD and Rumbly Island, students will be pleasantly surprised that the narration is done by Willy, the Green Dragon, himself. A laugh out loud story, Suzanne has used lighthearted humour in connecting readers to a real life event of wild bulls invading a local supermarket as an example of the impact feeding wild animals. Kudos to Suzanne for her remarkable efforts in motivating young readers to take action in Hong Kong through her stories.

This series just gets better and better!

Utterly encouraging! How could anybody feed animals after reading this book, after hearing about the possible EXPLOSIONS!?

David, Age 9

I liked the book. The pictures are awesome. The best bit is all the farting in the mud pool.

You should always take your rubbish home or the animals will eat it and get sick.

James, Age 6

The story is funny. I’ve never seen any animals go to the supermarket.  There’s lots of farting! I loved it!
