Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: Santa's Stolen Sleigh
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam - rehabilitated robbers, now pursuing a life of baking - visit Santa on Christmas Eve to prepare a feast for the big day. Yet, when they arrive, they find that all the elves have come out in spots and have been sent to bed without finishing getting the presents ready. Oh no!
When a polar bear called Flo Frost arrives and offers to help wrap all the remaining presents with one of her handy gadgets, it seems like Christmas is saved - but Flo seems rather too interested in Santa's magic sleigh.
Sure enough, when no-one's looking, Flo steals the sleigh, with Shifty and Sam in hot pursuit. Will they catch up with Flo and save Christmas? And has there been an unfortunate mix-up between the sugar and the magic flying dust?
Fans of Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam's adventures - also published as illustrated fiction for younger readers - will love this picture book which packs in all the fun and frolics of a Shifty and Sam adventure into its joyfully cake-festooned pages.
