An ebook-exclusive omnibus of books 1, 2 and 3 in the hilarious Porridge the Tartan Cat series.

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 with the quirky McFun family who all have a secret or two. Porridge is always there to lend a helping paw when things go wrong. It's a good job Porridge has nine lives!

In his first adventure, Porridge has discovered Gadget Grandad is 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 nemesis Fergus McFungus.

In his second, musical, adventure, Porridge has been framed! Someone is sabotaging Isla and Ross' attempts to reunite Groovy Gran's band and Porridge is the top suspect. Can a balloon-riding, wool-chasing, saucer-flying tartan cat clear his name?

In book 3, Porridge has been cat-napped -- but nobody has noticed! The twins, Isla and Ross, are too busy trying to help their super-scientist mum who has accidentally shrunk herself with some super-short shortbread. Will Porridge ever get home?

With wacky twists, silly word play and meow-nificent illustrations in every chapter, readers won't even want to paws for breath.
