Just when you think an empty house, with a crate was an easy target for three robbers - think again, especially if that house is run by cats! Three unsuspecting robbers spot an empty house ready for robbing, they have their list of things they need to steal, which turns out to be a safe, that is it. They think the mission is going to be an easy one, but little do they know that they are being watched by two sneaky spy cats. As the robbers make their way through the house, they are met by the cats, traps of spring-loaded cat claws and litter trays! Just as they get to the safe, they are carted away by the cats and taken to the police. All in time for the little old lady to return home to her beloved pet cats. And that's when we discover what is inside the safe...! I really enjoyed this picture book; the illustrations are very clever at revealing little clues to the story and adding in the humour. It is a fun, silly story to enjoy with children and even for adults to enjoy too! What will the cats get up to next?! Picture Book/ Ages 4+ / Reviewed by Lauren Maidman, teacher
