The Book

Johnny loves to travel. With his keen sight and sharp vision, he takes a trip to the sunny island called Singapore. As he rides on a bum boat along the Singapore River, he chances upon a strange looking creature overlooking the river. This half lion, half fish statue seems to peer at him so intensely.

Thus, Johnny meets Christy the flying merlion, who lives in the Singapore River. She takes him on a fantastic flight around this fascinating island, in search of a secret gift at unique places like Sentosa and the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Together, they meet famous people like Sir Stamford Raffles and Vanda Miss Joaquim along the way.

Come join Johnny on this awesome flight and discover this special gift at the heart of the Lion City!

"I love magic! I love the idea of making something 'impossible', possible and magical. Johnny Can Fly is an enlightening story that reminds us to let our imagination fly and immerse ourselves in the wonder and beauty of everything around us. May you find magic in your daily interactions with the people you meet! Bon Voyage!"
