The anti-drug illustrated book “Captain Drug Buster vs Dr Wacko – The Final Showdown”, was launched on 8 December 2018 by Mr Amrin Amin, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Health, at the Central Public Library.
2 The book is a collaboration between the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) and young authors Ms Jillian Khoo and Ms Teh Yu Yin. Intended not only to introduce the topic of “drugs and drug abuse” to the young, the book also serves as a useful anti-drug resource for parents, to better engage their children on the same topic. The book tells the story through simple dialogues and illustrations, to help the young better understand the harms of drugs and drug abuse.
3 Parents and their young joined in the launch, together with a story-telling session by the book’s author, Ms Jillian Khoo. They were brought on an adventure with Captain Drug Buster, who enlisted the help of three young students, and defeated Dr Wacko and his drug monsters before they go on to destroy more lives with drugs.
4 75 copies of the book are now available for loan, distributed at the various public libraries. CNB will also distribute copies of the illustrated book to all primary school libraries by end-March 2019.
5 Come, join Captain Drug Buster and fight for a drug-free Singapore!
