Book Synopsis

Winner of the Hedwig Anuar Children's Book Award 2022
Winner of the Best Young Persons Title at the Singapore Book Awards 2022

His only cure? Memory Glue. To brew it, Alexis just needs eight ingredients: stuff like, nose hair from a baku (dream-eater), sweat from a duyung (sea siren) and ... OK. Maybe some are tricky to find in local supermarkets.
To obtain them Alexis must journey to a realm where the fabled creatures from Grandpa's folktales are alive in the flesh (and often flesh-eating).
At least she'll have fun company: the nasty kenit (forest imp) who'd cast the horrible spell on Grandpa, and her no-nonsense Grandma, who harbours a secret that will change Alexis' life forever ...
Piece of cake, right?
Oh, there's also a deadline.
Can Grandpa be saved before he's forever lost to the mists within his mind?
Based on a true story.

About the Author

Malaysian-born and Singapore-based, Daryl Kho works in the regional TV industry, where he basically sells other people's stories and ideas for a living. He was a prolific creator during his student days: composing songs, poems, plays and even a kung-fu musical! However, after Daryl joined the rat race, corporate emails became his sole literary output. Gradually, his creative tank dried up. Then in 2009 -- shortly before the birth of Daryl's only child, Alexis -- Daryl's father was felled by two strokes, which also caused vascular dementia.
