In a nutshell: lively, funny, well-told stories starring everyone’s favourite baker dogs

Friends Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam are complete opposites, not just in looks but in their characters too: Shifty is hard-working and organised, while Sam is always well-meaning but easily distracted (often by food). As such they make the perfect comedy duo and these little stories are both exciting and very funny. Each collection features three different adventures, including in this one a star appearance by Santa Paws, and they are just the thing for newly confident readers. Tracey Corderoy’s texts and Steve Lenton’s illustrations are brimful of fun and character and ‘the boys’ are deservedly favourites with readers. ~ Andrea Reece
