Funny, furry Porridge has CAT-a-logged six Tartan Cat adventures for 6 to 9 year old readers to enjoy. Every story stars a member of the McFun family. Gadget Grandad, Groovy Gran, Mini Mum, Dino Dad, Roaring Ross & Invisible Sister. Nothing is ever what it seems in this fantastic family. Everyone has a surprising secret & a knack of getting into trouble. Luckily, Porridge is around to lend a helping paw & save the day. All it takes is courage & a box of brain-boosting Fishy Biscuits.  Mmmm. Fishy Biscuits.

“The latest series to launch from Floris Books’ Young Kelpies list is a wild, laugh-out-loud romp featuring Porridge the Tartan Cat, a long story that involves precisely one cat and one tin of tartan paint.”

- Books from Scotland

“And sneakily, as cats do, Porridge the Tartan Cat has brought out another title! Catch Alan Dapré - Author & Artist at NessBookFest in October, where wacky wordplay will be the order of the day!”
