Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Aliens Are Coming!

Three more slapstick early readers from our favourite doggy detectives, all set in the summer sun. And things are HOTTING UP! Someone is CHEATING in the SANDCASTLE competition! There’s something FISHY about the new CAFE! But it’s the ALIEN INVASION that REALLY makes Shifty and Sam lose their COOL! Anyone for an ICED bun?!

Brilliant stories hilariously told by Tracey Corderoy and beautifully brought to life by Steven Lenton’s illustrations in deliclous two-colour.

Our Review Panel says...

Shifty and Sam have exchanged their life of crime as burglars (and not very good ones at that) for a new venture selling homemade cupcakes. Their criminal know-how soon comes into its own when they take it upon themselves to solve mysteries and catch crooks. This book contains three humorous short stories brought to life by Steven Lenton’s cheerful illustrations.
