"Young Mistress And The Ginger Nuts" is a shorter tale showing how Louisa learnt her manners, as Tigtoes and Squimps demonstrate their paw dexterity on the phone.  
3a Bullpuss And The Ginger Nuts

In "Bullpuss And The Ginger Nuts" we relate how, having thought that the garden was rather quiet with the absence of Captain Bullpuss, the real Bullpuss arrives and causes havoc whilst waiting to gain official admission through the cat-flap and back into the arms of a loving family.

4 Cats At The Cottage

In "Cats At The Cottage", the four jolly Ginger Nuts accompany their people on a winter visit to the holiday cottage (somewhere in East Cumbria); the car and trailer cause issues in the snow, the local farm felines need handling with kid paws and the local wildlife needs urban sustenance to help with the long winter.

10 Clawed, The Kit From Red Bank

The tale is set in Lyme Regis, a handsome Dorset seaside resort on the English Channel and features some new cat characters, mainly Clawed and Ginger-Ginger who are delighted to find that the famous Ginger Nuts jazz band, featuring Bullpuss on double-bass, Squimps on piano and Mungo Jerrycan on baritone saxophone are booked to appear in the town as part of the jazz festival. Cameo appearances are made by Captain Bullpuss, whom we first met in Book 2, "More Fun With The Ginger Nuts" and Benson, drummer with the jazz band. Having got on so well with the farm and barn cats as related in Book 4, "Cats At The Cottage", the Ginger Nuts always looked forward to the next trip to Cumbria, to renew friendships with Benson and his family and exchange anecdotes.  This story is specially for the older parent reading to a child, since the jokes require a knowledge of the jazz pantheon and songs from the Great American Song-book.

 
11 The Ginger Nuts Go Camping

Another one story book, where the cats are invited to go on a camping holiday in the family's home-made camper van. Firstly to the Peak District where the camper proves rather cramped and secondly, after modifications plus the conversion of the trailer, to the lowlands of Scotland where the Ginger Nuts have an adventure with Wild Bill Hicat and his gang of Border Retrievers.
