Zoot Alor! My favorite canine cake crafters are BACK in their 4th and most magnifique picture book caper yet.
The Missing Masterpiece set in the tree lined streets of tres chic gay Paris see’s Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam em’bark’ on their most ambitious showstopper challenge yet as they set about making an almost life size gingerbread tour Eiffel for a launch at Galerie BonBon. Through sublime blossom embellished streets, past lingering landmarks and a cast of supporting actors worthy of Baftas, Steven’s icon pun enriched pastel illustrations and Tracey’s beautifully crafted rhyming text lead the reader happily through the streets of this breath-taking city at a delightfully fun packed pace.
Alas a cunning tweed clad fox with an eye for a masterpiece is on the lose and has his sights set on the exhibition launch. Will Sam and Shifty have need to deploy their all new Aqua Van? Will they save the missing masterpiece? Will the Sly fox survive to wear that charming waistcoat again? All will be revealed.
The Shifty and Sam series in both is picture book and fiction guises make perfect reads for thrill seekers, bun fanatics, people who are passionate about pooches and fans of plain old really delightful, well written, beautifully illustrated, luxuriously produced books. This really is a series for everyone.
Bravo Tre Bon Tracey and Superb Steve.
