Shifty and Sam have left their life of crime behind them and run a successful baking business. Tonight they’re catering a special birthday party at Woofington Hall and Lady Kate deserves a cake as glamorous as she is. Everyone is delighted with the delicious food but when Lady Kate joins the party she’s in despair – someone has stolen her diamond tiara! Shifty and Sam are on the case, and soon they’ve got the thief in their sights. Sidney Scarper is certainly speedy, but a penguin is not match for a puppy, and it is Lady Kate’s Newphew Barnaby who saves the day.
Tracey Corderoy’s bouncy rhyme springs the story forward. Children will love trying to spot the cheeky robber in the colourful spreads. Steve Lenton’s illustrations are gorgeous with pretty pastel colours and bright spreads with cute details – watch out for tangoing Boston terriers and play spot the spider on each page. Another cakey caper from Corderoy and Lenton is always a welcome prospect – look out for their first young fiction story starring Shifty McGifty coming soon.
