Porridge the Tartan Cat and the Loch Ness Mess
Also available as: Paperback
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!) and the twins, Isla and Ross, have been dragged to Loch Ness where Dino Dad is hoping to dig up some pre-historic bones. But when a magic wishing bone transforms Dino Dad into a real-life dinosaur, he’s mistaken for the Loch Ness Monster and captured by a Nessie-hunter!
Can they prove Dino Dad isn’t really Nessie and save him from the dastardly Fergus McFungus? Join Porridge and the twins on this dino-tastic, Nessie-riding romp around Scotland’s most famous loch. What a Loch Ness mess!
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.
'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.'
