Smart kitty. Mucky pup. Here comes trouble…

Jasper and Scruff’s latest venture, Paws Diner, is a big success. Customers come from far and wide to sample their Salted Caramel Cake and the place is always packed. Until, that is, The Sophisticafé opens across the street.

Determined not to be outdone by their old enemies, The Sophisticats, Jasper sets to work on a fancy new menu. But while Jasper hopes to gain a coveted three paw rating from the great restaurant critic Gaspard le Skunk, Scruff worries that his friend is forgetting about their loyal regulars. Worse still, The Sophisticats have heard that Gaspard is paying the diner a visit and have cooked up a fiendish plan…

A laugh-out-loud tale of friendship, with colour illustrations, perfect for new readers moving on from picture books, and fans of CLAUDE, RABBIT AND BEAR, SQUISHY MCFLUFF and HOTEL FLAMINGO.

“Adorable illustrations, snappy dialogue and outrageous puns make it the cat’s pyjamas” – Guardian

1 review for Jasper and Scruff: The Great Cat Cake-off

  1. Ruth

    We are so pleased to have discovered Jasper and Scruff. What delightful characters they are! Jasper and Scruff – The Great Cat Cake-off is everything you’d hope for in an early reader – humorous, entertaining and at times, outrageous (!) with some valuable lessons along the way. The text is broken up into manageable chunks with full-colour illustrations throughout.

    Jasper and Scruff have opened a new Diner, and it’s a terrific success! That is, until their old enemies, the Sophisticats open their own cafe across the street…

    My 6 year old read it one sitting. Judging from her little bursts of giggles, the comedy was perfectly pitched and she thoroughly enjoyed the story (as did I when I finally got my ‘paws’ on it).

    A big thank you to Little Tiger Press for our advanced review copy. Now to catch up on Jasper and Scruff’s other escapades!
