What is Loti?

A chance encounter between a boy and a dog.

Loti is a daily, four-panel, slice of life comic strip that began its run on September 30, 2008. The story follows the inquisitive Huang Shuwen and his five Primary 2 friends as they go about their adventures in and around their neighbourhood.

Shuwen's optimism and fascination with life soon leads him to discover the enigmatic dog he calls Loti. During the course of the series, he begins to discover what it means to be happy, and prompts the same question in the people around him.

Each volume captures one term of the school year, depicting all the Singaporean festivals and activities that punctuate each quarter of the local calendar. Whether it's celebrating Chinese New Year, a trip to the beach, National Day or the mooncake festival, Loti is a series that will charm both Singaporeans and overseas readers of all ages!

The series ended its daily run on December 31, 2011, but you can enjoy the full version and enhanced story by checking out the books below!
