Percy and Pam: Trouble at the Prata Shop (book 1)
Illustrated by Eliz Ong
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.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.
