Spike used to be a cat-burglar, but he’s given up his life of crime to live with retired police officer, Police Nan. Now he’s a baddie-turned-goodie, and enjoys his comfy life of cream, cuddles and cat naps. One problem: if Police Nan hears about a crime, she just can’t help herself. On goes her old police helmet, and off she bustles to solve the case. Only Police Nan’s a bit rusty these days … she needs Spike and his sharp, ex-cat-burglar brain to dig her out of trouble and help solve the crimes. Join Police Nan and Spike as they travel to Paris to solve the mystery of the toyshop robber in this hilarious story by Dawn McNiff.
