Product Description
Burglar Bill

Amazon Review
Burglar Bill is the delightful story of a thief who lives off other people's fortunes, until two major events change his life forever. The first is when he steals a box only to find it contains a baby, and the second is when he, too, is burgled, by Burglar Betty. The improbable union that follows offers a convenient moral that turns both thieves into honest folk who vow to keep on the straight and narrow.

Bright illustrations (if somewhat stereotypical, with Burglars Bill and Betty in stripy shirts, eye masks and carrying swag bags!) cheer up this somewhat serious tale and break up the text for first readers. A lovely story to read together at bedtime. (Ages 4 to 7 years) --Lucie Naylor

Amazon.co.uk Teacher Review

Children need to read at home every day to practise the reading skills that they have been taught. Here are some tips to help make Burglar Bill part of your child's reading routine:

  • choose a time when you and your child both want to read, sit somewhere comfortable and quiet.
  • before you begin to read, get a "feel" for the book by looking at the cover, front and back and talking about it.
  • let your child hold the book and turn the pages. Look at the pictures.
  • look for the little details--they help the child to understand what the book is about.
  • let your child "read" the book to you by talking about each picture.
  • read the book again and again if you both enjoy it.
If used to support learning at home, Burglar Bill can help first readers achieve the targets for Key Stage One English: Reading. --Amanda York
