Who or what is destroying all the Christmas treats in the supermarkets? Santa sends his Mince Spies on a secret mission to uncover the culprits. With puff-pastry jetpacks, shortcrust walkie-talkies and squirty whipped cream they foil the villains - with a bit of help from Santa.

A hilarious rhyming romp of a story with a festive message for all baddies: it's better when you're nice!

Review quote

It's Christmas Eve and someone has destroyed all the festive treats in the supermarket. The Mince Spies are on the case - but could it have anything to do with a bunch of sprouts who just want to be loved? * Sunday Express * A lighthearted and enjoyable Christmas read for young children. The rhyming narrative [...] and the accompanying illustrations by Sophie Corrigan really help create a delightful and fun story. I can envision sharing this story on a wintry afternoon, fully equipped with mugs of hot chocolate and plates of mince pies to enjoy. * ReadingZone *
