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 can't wait to visit the funfair that's just come to town -- but this funfair isn't fair at all. Riding the Howlercoaster doesn't just turn their knees to jelly, it turns Ross into a hairy scarewolf!


Dastardly Fangus McFungus is using the unfair funfair as a cover for his sneaky scheme to find the most powerful, most pongyful element in the universe: sproutinium. But why does he need to transform children into creepy creatures to do it?


Join Porridge on this rollercoaster-riding, stink-sniffing, wolf-whiffing adventure with Isla and Roaring Ross! Can they stop Fangus from stinking out the whole town? Will they change Ross back before hes stuck as a beast forever?  


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.
