'Agent Penny' to teach dollars and cents

Singapore's Channel News Asia reports that Citibank and the Learning Society are rolling out The Adventures of Agent Penny comic book to teach kids about money management:
"We say that maybe if we make it fun, so that it's easier for the Upper Primary school children between 10 and 12 to understand it, and with that we have Agent Penny as the character with which we could introduce all the concepts of how to save money, budgeting, and what we saw today." said Lee Ah Boon, Country Business Manager of Citibank Singapore.
