About the Big Bad Wolf Sale

The story of the Big Bad Wolf Sale began in 2006 when Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng opened their first book store in Kuala Lumpur to help improve the literacy rate in Malaysia. However, they knew they had to ensure books were readily available to the masses at affordable prices to really make a difference. This was the beginning of Big Bad Wolf Sale!
