Mr Kiasu is one of Singapore’s most recognisable comic icons in the 90s, bringing a brand of local humor that is greatly identifyable and relatable to Singaporeans everywhere. A caricature of a typical Singaporean who “does not like to lose”, the comic series has sold over 650,000 copies since its debut in 1990, with eight comic volumes and three spin-off titles; and also has a live-action drama series and various merchandise to its franchise.
Relaunched in 2017, Mr Kiasu is now presented in a new environment – a technologically advanced and modern Singapore, to which he applies his own quirky brand of “Kiasu” solutions to everyday situations.
“Everything also I want”. This is the war cry of Mr Kiasu as he fights his daily battle in a world full of kiasus. This book is highly recommended for all Singaporeans. In fact it should be compulsory reading in all schools.ISBN: 9789811161230
