Percy enjoys nothing more than a prata breakfast with his best friend Pam. Just thinking about crispy fried bread will make a polar bear’s tummy rumble.
When Percy and Pam find the owner of Ramasamy’s Prata in despair over a theft from his shop – the third time that week – the brave duo set out to catch the robber. But can a hungry polar bear surrounded by the delicious smells of nearby restaurants stay focused on the mission? And what mysterious characters will they meet in the middle of the night?
The first in the illustrated Percy and Pam series sees the best friends working together – solving mysteries and helping others – and tucking into some of Singapore’s most treasured dishes along the way. Ideal for children growing in confidence as readers and beginning to read alone.
