How Not To Fix A Car : the adventures of Bob and Arop

How Not to Fix a Car : the adventures of Bob and Arop

By children from Richmond West Primary School & Abbotsford Primary School

One fateful morning, on the corner of Lennox, Victoria and Nicholson streets, Bob the monkey and Arop the sea urchin collided in their cars due to an incredible, dazzling supermarket display. At that moment, neither of them knew that this chance occurrence would lead to an exciting adventure throughout Richmond and initiate a lifelong friendship. How can Arop survive without water? Will Bob understand Arop in spite of his limited vocabulary? And most important of all, will they fix the car?

Children from Years 5 and 6 at Richmond West Primary School and Abbotsford Primary School wrote and illustrated this book in both English and Mandarin.
