Shifty McGifty & Slippery Sam by Tracey Corderoy & Steven Lenton

Have you ever come across a better book title than this one? This is definitely one for kids and adults alike. I love the illustrations and the story is heaps of fun. These two characters are fantastic, I love the way they tip toe from page to page, eyes shifting from side to side. Brilliant!

After one bungled burglary too many, Shifty and Sam decide on a career-change – crime may not pay, but cupcakes certainly do! This funny, quirky story, deliciously dished up by debut artist Steven Lenton, is full of depth of detail and colour. A real treat – especially for dog-lovers everywhere!
