Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: Santa’s Stolen Sleigh
Tracey Corderoy and Steven Lenton
What a super seasonal addition to the cracking series is this latest rhyming story of everybody’s favourite bakers.
Now it’s a chilly Christmas Eve and the duo have driven through snow and ice to Lapland to rustle up some culinary treats for a very special person. However on arrival they discover Santa is in big trouble: his elves have been hit by a mysterious disease and taken to their beds.
Suddenly, up zooms a stranger offering assistance with gift wrapping; but armed with her gadgets, is Flo Frost all that she seems or is there some kind of sneaky subterfuge at work?
If so, with the aid of their own kind of gadgets, it could be down to Shifty and Sam to pull off a rescue, save the day yet again and ensure that all those presents get to their destinations in time.
With plenty of mayhem and mix-ups, this splendid festive treat for reading aloud will delight both children and adult sharers. Steven’s illustrations too are a treat: every single spread has lots of delicious details and don’t miss that little arachnid that sneaks into each scene.
