The Popular staff who told you that is definitely not right. I am very sure Popular carry My Pals Are Here Maths Workbook as I have seen that before. Whether it is out of stock for P5 may be the issue.

You can try calling Popular branch and insist the Customer Service help you check for stock availability. Their system list the available stock and branch, and you can then reserve and pick it up from there.

Hi Pen88n,
Yes, Popular carries the Text and Workbook. But there is another series call the "Homework". Not sure what's the difference, but in DS school, the top 3 class uses 'Homework' and other classes use 'Workbook'. :)

Same for us too cwc. Had problem getting the Homework series for DD1 too then finally gave up searching at Popular since all of them said they don't carry it. I told teacher very sorry we just transferred to the school so dunno that her class needed them so teacher helped place order via school bookshop. I can help u ask from school bookshop in the event still don't have ok?

Oh yah, saw it too.....but frankly, I really dunno what's the difference between the 3 - workbook, homework, enrichment :faint: Was at Popular and briefly glanced at the Assessment area, soooooo many new things....sooooo confusing :scared:

Thanks for the offer....will see if can get it around here first. I think you stay far from me leh. But at least your DD's teacher offer to place order via bookshop, DS say teacher tell him to try & get it........ :roll:
