Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam

author: Tracey Corderoy

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam are two hapless robber dogs who decide the perfect way to rob their neighbors would be to invite them over for a lovely tea party. The only problem is they’ve never baked a cupcake or pastry in their lives. Could this be the change of pace they’ve been looking for? A funny, quirky story, deliciously dished up!

Does crime really pay? Not for these two burglars. After one bungle too many they decide on a career change that any mother would be proud of!
