Draw Shifty McGifty & Slippery Sam!

We’re delighted to have published Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: Pirates Ahoy! in July – the latest instalment of the wonderful Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam series, written by Tracey Corderoy and illustrated by Steven Lenton.

Here’s what it’s all about:

The detective dogs are back for a swashbuckling pirate adventure!

Shifty and Sam have swapped their life of crime for a career in cupcakes. But when they’re asked to bake for a pirate party, they find themselves caught up in the middle of a robbery. Uh-oh! Captain Sharpwhiskers and his criminal crew have stolen Captain Chucklebeard’s treasure! Can Shifty and Sam catch those BAD pirates and bring back the loot? Find out in this hilarious, rhyming picture book adventure!

And today we’re sharing some of Steven Lenton’s drawalongs from his YouTube channel, so that you can learn to draw Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam yourself!
