Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This charming UK import follows two robber dogs, whose bag of “swag” is consistently empty. We meet them at the end of a long, unsuccessful night, as they return to their ramshackle home and empty the swag bag. Its contents: a single spider (which appears throughout). Shifty, a mutt, and Slippery, a pug, review their night’s adventures: they failed at robbing the bank and the butchery, yes, but most humiliating (and hilariously depicted in a rushing double-page spread) were the animals that chased them out of the zoo. Yep, they need a new approach. So they invite their neighbors over for a tea party, hoping to rob their homes while the guests are scarfing down treats. However, as they concoct delicacies, they discover something unexpected: baking is fun! This fresh take on the “trickster-tricked” idea—with a rhyming text that meshes well with Lenton’s mixed-media illustrations—should get plenty of use from your library’s own sticky-finger gang. Preschool-Grade 2. --Connie Fletcher

Review

Corderoy’s unobtrusive, let-me-tell-you-a-story rhymes allow Lenton, a British animator making his debut, to take center stage with cheerily frenetic images that look like freeze frames from a cartoon...
—Publishers Weekly

The story, written in rhyme and accompanied by Lenton’s mixed-media illustrations, is lively and expressive. The baked treats look good enough to eat and will surely appeal to storyhour audiences. Each page contains a tiny spider that children will love to try to spot.
—School Library Journal

Charming... This fresh take on the “trickster-tricked” idea — with a rhyming text that meshes well with Lenton’s mixed-media illustrations — should get plenty of use from your library’s own sticky-finger gang.
