The doggy duo is back, and this time there's pastry pandemonium in Paris!

In this rhyming, picture book adventure, Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam have made it to the magical streets of Paris, baking a spectacular gingerbread Eiffel Tower for a VERY important art exhibition at "Galerie Bonbon". But a sneaky fox has made off across the Seine with the precious masterpiece. Will Shifty and Sam EVER catch the dastardly Cunningham Sly and dish up their tasty tower in time?

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam is a hugely successful, action-packed series about two baker-dogs who used to be robbers, but now solve mysteries and sniff out crimes!

Here's what you say about us...

Tracey grew up in South Wales, on a council estate firmly sandwiched between the steel and chemical works. Here you were born, you worked, and you generally stayed.
She's a trained teacher but now writes full-time in an old damp cottage on the Gloucestershire hills. A multi award-winning author, her first book was published in 2010, and in December 2019, her 70th.
As a young child, Tracey owned few books. But thanks to an ancient set of encyclopaedias she happened upon, and a Ladybird copy of Cinderella, her passion for nosing into other people's 'stories' began early on!
Some years later, one very special Secondary School teacher and many great librarians, fed Tracey more and more books. Between their pages real magic then started to happen. Impossible adventures became do-able. Characters became friends. Boundaries became gates as her world, very slowly, opened up. Books made her laugh and cry and think.
They made her feel that - maybe she could do things.
