Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Missing Masterpiece

Ever heard the saying, it takes a thief to catch a thief? Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam used to be robbers, till they gave up their naughty ways. Now they bake yummy cakes for a living, and everybody loves them. But when a thief strikes, can these marvellous mutts solve the crime? Shifty and Sam have made it to the magical streets of Paris.

Can our heroes outfox his cunning plot and dish up their tasty tower in time?
