Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Spooky School

A brand-new two-colour illustrated fiction series, featuring everyone’s favourite robber dogs-turned-bakers, Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam – stars of the popular picture book series written by Tracey Corderoy and Steven Lenton. The brand new fiction series begins with Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Spooky School – and you can take a look inside the book for the first time today!

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam don’t just make amazing cakes – these two brave bakers solve wacky mysteries too!

Halloween at St Spectre’s school brings out the cheekiest of ghosts! And who is to blame when the weather goes CRAZY? A power-grabbing red panda maybe? Certainly not the racoon gang fixing the museum’s toilets – they’ve got dastardly plans of their OWN!

With three hilarious read-aloud stories, and beautiful two-colour illustrations, this is a fantastic book for 6+ year olds – it’s perfect for young children ready for the next milestone after picture books, and great for both independent reading and sharing.
