Product Description

Details

When Porridge was a wee kitten he toppled into a tin of tartan paint -- which is easy to do and not so easy to say.


Now he lives by Loch Loch with the quirky McFun family: Gadget Grandad, Groovy Gran, Dino Dad, Mini Mum and the twins, Roaring Ross and Invisible Isla. Everyone has a super secret -- or two-- and Porridge is always there to lend a helping paw when things go awry. If there's a fishy biscuit in it for him...


And things do often go awry in the McFun family. It's a good job Porridge has nine lives!


--------------


Porridge the Tartan Cat (it's a long story involving a tin of tartan paint!) has been cat-napped! But nobody has noticed! The twins, Isla and Ross, are too busy trying to help their super-scientist mum who has accidentally shrunk herself with some super-short shortbread.





Will the twins be able to unshrink Mini Mum? Can they rescue Porridge from a pet shop infested with crocodiles, dung beetles and his arch-enemy Moggiarty?


-----------------


In this zany new series for young readers, Porridge purrfectly CAT-a-logs the family's hilarious adventures from a cat's-eye perspective. With wacky twists, silly word play and meow-nificent illustrations in every chapter, readers won't even want to paws for breath.

Press Reviews

'This is a crazy, fast paced, funny and action packed story which once I started to read whizzed through and thoroughly enjoyed. [The book] is packed full of brilliant illustrations by Yuliya [Somina]. They are fun and dynamic really supporting the text brilliantly... The writing is where these books really stand out... It would be a very effective book to use in school to aid creative writing... a fantastically frantic and fun feline filled and frenetic tale of one adorable tartan cat and his family.'

'Hysterical [...] There are some brilliant pictures in them too. My 8-year-old loves reading them himself, and they'd be fab to read to a child too.'
