The monkey teacher is back again.
Reading Roald Dahl in the past, I thought that I can easily match up to the master’s writing standards when I grew older. It is only after the passing of time that I realised I was wrong – children’s books are undoubtedly hard to write – especially when you’re not a child. But Otto Fong has done it again; he has once again condescended to write his new comic book for primary schoolers and slow to mature lower secondary students. As you can see from the cover, the topic this time is ‘Light’.
There are pranksters:
A call for pay increases for teachers (perhaps a result of Otto reminiscing about his secret desire in his days as a teacher):
And even backsides:
Otto graciously drew the naked Sir Fong from the back, leaving his member well hidden. It is obvious that backsides aren’t as private as members since everyone has one, so backsides can be safely drawn without raising the anxiety of any parent.
‘Google’ somehow became ‘Ogle’, which may actually be a better name for the search giant since it is what most people do on the internet in their rooms when nobody is at home anyway:
I even got my name in print:
Well, I was glad to have been Otto’s proofreader.

*If you’re slightly confused, the author’s name is Otto Fong (who is a human and a former teacher at RI) and the name of the main character in the book is Sir Fong (who is a monkey and is a teacher in a school full of bunnies). And if you’re alert, you would have noticed a ‘Sir Kong’ in the third photo – that’s the “upsized” version of Sir Fong.
