A charming friendship blossoms between a little girl and a caterpillar. But can she protect him as he crawls from one danger to another? Author Thanmolie K Vellasamy invites young readers to find out in “Run! Oongly Moongly!” (published by Partridge Singapore).

Eleven-year-old Meena is having breakfast in the garden when a little caterpillar suddenly appears, looking lonely and scared. She decides to name it Oongly Moongly and help it find a new home. She goes to all extents to save Oongly Moongly from the dangers he faces in his new environment.

“Run! Oongly Moongly!” is an adorable story of friendship, trust, responsibility, empowerment and transformation. The simple storytelling combined with colorful illustrations trigger the children’s creativity and imagination, as well as their self-awareness on how to handle challenges, conflicts and resolutions. It also highlights the value of caring for all kinds of animals and embracing differences regardless of appearance, color or gender.

“We all know that children undergo many changes, in their physical, emotional and mental dimensions. They also experience and assimilate the world and their own physical environments very differently from adults. Adults must remember that the world that children experience is very different from the world that we perceive. This book offers a pathway to enter into the children’s world and to reach out to them on the core values of trust, friendship, responsibility and care for nature,” the author states.
