Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Spooky School


The first title in a two-colour fiction series, ideal for children growing in confidence as readers and beginning to read alone.

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 raccoon gang fixing the museum’s toilets – they’ve got dastardly plans of their OWN!

Look out for Shifty and Sam’s other chapter book adventures:

Up, Up and Away!

The Aliens are Coming!

Jingle Bells!
