Get ready for fun and hilarity in this action-packed comedy caper - featuring three hapless robbers, two very clever cats, and one robbery gone wrong!

These robbers are masked and armed with their robbing list. They're going to steal the loot from the big old house on the hill. Except they haven't planned for the cats who live there. With booby traps ready, they're going to stop the villains sneaking and creeping their way to the prized safe. Will the robbers get what they came for? Or will these two clever kitties foil their plan and keep the loot for themselves?

A funny, high-energy picture book with a fun surprise twist at the end, created by bestselling illustrator turned author, Russell Ayto.

Russell Ayto is a popular and bestselling children's illustrator whose books include Quacky Quack-Quack! (shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award and the Smarties Book Prize), Super Sue and Super Sue at Super School. He won the Gold Smarties Award in 2003 for The Witch's Children, and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2008 for The Witch's Children Go to School. He has been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal twice. Before illustrating children's books, Russell worked for various magazines including Time Out and the Sunday Observer. Russell lives in Cornwall with his family. He is also the author of Henry and the Yeti and The Match (Bloomsbury).

This book is great fun, with the triple repeated sneaky words, the triple exclamations as the robbers comment on their plight, and the slapstick. Russell Ayto has produced another highly recommended picture book. * Armadillo Magazine *
