The title of the book series, Twinkletoes, drew its inspiration from Chia Boon Leong, a Singaporean footballer who was nicknamed "Twinkletoes" in the 1950s for his amazing footwork and ball control.
It features Leandro Giovanni Ang Soon Huat as its main character and follows the adventures of Leandro and his football team from Morrison High School. School principal Mr Billy Chin, and Leandro's friends, Jasmine, Hock Ann and Augustine are some of the other characters.
Along with the illustrations, words are emphasized with playful typography. The books also include inserts such as fun facts and jokes with the aim of entertaining young children.
