Each story is linked to the next, forming one complete story for the whole year, thereby creating suspense between stories.The series of stories carry a local flavour and pupils can identify with some of the settings used. For example, famous places of interest such as Sentosa, the Zoological Garden, the Jurong Bird Park, etc are locations set for the some of the topics.
