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 discovered Gadget Grandad is not your average snoringly boring grandad after all! He's a super-duper secret spy -- and he needs help from Porridge (the cat, not the gloopy breakfast) and the twins Isla and Ross to defeat his arch enemy Fergus McFungus. McFungus has stolen the secret secret recipe for disaster. Can Porridge and the twins help their shark-surfing, shed-racing, space travelling grandad stop him and save the world? Maybe with the help of some brawsome bagpipes... -------------------- 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Frequent line illustrations reminiscent of Quentin Blake enrich the story's zippy pace and comedic effect... Readers will enjoy the surprise endings, unusual characters, and absurd humor... these books work wonderfully as silly read alouds.' -- School Library Journal 'A lively mix of splendidly surreal comedy and madcap action... cleverly designed to grab youngsters' attention from the start and keep them hooked to the final page' -- Teachwire '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.' -- Library Loves podcast 'Very funny, with loads of illustrations.' -- Suffolk Libraries 'If you like crazy word play, cheeky narrators, off-beat adventures and distinctive settings this could be just what you're looking for... Much as I adore Katie Morag, and have done my time with Balamory, if you want something a little spunkier by way of a giggle inducing and gloriously silly Scottish story, do track down Porridge the Tartan Cat.' -- Playing by the Book 'These stories are full of jokes, puns and madcap action adventure... they are just the sort of books to encourage newly independent readers to enjoy reading.' -- School Library Association
