In Secrets of Singapore: National Museum, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl take a peek behind the pillars of the National Museum to see what secrets it guards. And what a treasure trove! From way back to the time of Sang Nila Utama right up to modern day Singapore, the superhero duo unearth curious artefacts such as a headless horseman figurine from the 1300s, and banana money (not made from actual bananas) from the Japanese Occupation.

In exploring the museum, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl discover that the museum itself hides a curious past. It was once located in a school (Raffles Institution, no less!), and some of the more unusual gifts it received included an elephant and a tiger. Luckily, they were dead. Otherwise, there would have been chaos at the museum.

Join Danger Dan and Gadget Girl on an adventure through the National Museum and watch history come to life right before your eyes!

An independent publisher based in Singapore, Epigram Books is known for putting together well-designed and thought-provoking titles. It began as a division of the multiple award-winning communications design firm Epigram but registered as a separate entity in July 2011 to champion Singaporean literature.

It is best known for the middle grade series, The Diary of Amos Lee, which has sold over 240,000 copies worldwide. Other landmark publications include translations of Cultural Medallion winners and new editions of out-of-print classic Singaporean novels.

In 2014, a debut short story collection Epigram Books published, Ministry of Moral Panic by Amanda Lee Koe, unanimously won the Singapore Literature Prize for English Fiction.
