When Randall discovered a thief making off with his favorite stuffed animal, Mr. Pigglesworth, he did what any big boy would do. He set of on a chase to save his friend.

Kids will love tracking Randall and the robber as they run out of the house and off to the zoo— past the alligator pool and through the bat caves— then on through the chocolate factory, the city museum, the fair, and even way up high in a hot air balloon. And they'll love yelling, along with Randall, "STOP THIEF!"


Praise for Stop Thief!

“Perfect for an action-packed read-aloud, and bound to be read, and pored over, again and again.” —School Library Journal

“…comics-style panels and fun, intricate details demand a closer look at this caper.” —Kirkus

“A combination of summer action flick and old-fashioned adventure, Randall's story should hold up to multiple re-readings. Best of all: it isn't just a dream.” —Publishers Weekly
