Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Cat Burglar

It’s dog detectives vs clever kitties in this funny rhyme. Love cakes and solving crimes? Enjoy. What’s better than doing nasty old crimes? Baking yummy cakes. But what’s even more fun? Solving crimes! In their first rhyme, burglar hounds Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam learned that crime doesn’t pay. So they gave it up (phew), and opened a lovely cafe. But now a new criminal has hit town: the naughty Kitty-le-Claw. Who can catch this cat burglar? Well, maybe our doggy ex-burglars might have a clever plan involving doughnuts and cakes…
