It’s not everyday in Singapore that you’d find a polar bear at the hairdresser’s getting a ‘fur-cut’. But Percy’s fur is an unruly mess.

When best friends Percy and Pam stumble upon a recipe for chicken rice that’s been dropped outside the hairdresser’s, they set out to find its owner. After all, any serious food-lover knows that a recipe for perfectly tender chicken and deliciously fragrant rice is simply too good to lose!

With the help of a friendly shop assistant, and a stall-owner at the nearby wet market, Percy and Pam piece together the clues to solve the mystery and, as always, make time to enjoy some tasty treats along the way.

The second 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.

About the Author

Ruth Wan grew up in Toa Payoh, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Singapore. She was fortunate to live 30 steps away from a huge library and practically grew up among its shelves. These days, Ruth writes because her three book-loving children keep feeding her story ideas. She still visits the library in Toa Payoh, and always gets a kick out of finding her own books there now.
