Description

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.

Percy & Pam - Ruth Wan-Lau

Chapter 1

Look! We’re the first ones here! Percy exclaimed.

The young polar bear could not contain his excitement and ran towards the prata shop.

It was 7.30am on a Saturday morning and Pam and her parents, Mr and Mrs Tan, were slowly dragging their feet behind Percy.

Wait for us! Stop running! Pam said sleepily, while yawning.

Usually, it was Pam who got up bright and early, and had to force her best friend, Percy, out of bed.

But today, Percy had woken up earlier than anybody else.

He had washed his face, brushed his teeth, combed his fur and then, while hitting a steel pot with a wooden spoon, announced, It’s Saturday morning! It’s time for family prata breakfast!

The rest of the Tan family buried their heads under their pillows.

A few weekends ago, Pam’s family had discovered a place nearby that made delicious prata. Percy had become obsessed with this local dish.

Who wouldn’t love crispy fried bread? Especially when it was prepared with yummy fillings—from egg and cheese to banana slices and chocolate sauce.

Isn’t it great that Ramasamy Prata opens at 7am? Percy said, licking his lips.
