Everyone’s favourite robber dogs are back: the return of Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam!

This July we’re publishing a brand new picture book that a LOT of people have been waiting for: Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Cat Burglar, the highly-anticipated follow-up to Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, the rhyming crime caper picture book phenomenon written by Tracey Corderoy and illustrated by Steven Lenton, is here!

Reformed robber dogs Shifty and Sam have embarked upon a radical career change, and are now running a charming cafe. Life’s as sweet as a sugared doughnut until their new, seemingly cute-as-a-cupcake employee turns out to be infamous cat burglar Kitty-le-Claw. Shifty and Sam are caught in a sticky situation when they find themselves in the frame for Kitty’s raid on a bank vault. Have the cake-loving canines bitten off more than they can chew…?

Well, there’s only ONE way to find out – you’ll have to read the book once it’s published! And in the meantime, here’s a very first look inside. Behold – the opening spreads of The Cat Burglar:
