The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sean Taylor’s deliciously daft story of incompetent but lovable rat burglars is matched brilliantly by Hannah Shaw’s witty illustrations to make this picture book adventure very entertaining indeed. Daddypops dreams of carrying out a daring cheese shop break in, despite his children’s misgivngs. They’ve already tried before – and failed, spectacularly so! But he won’t give up and decides they’ll tunnel their way in. Words and pictures are full of jokes and the surprise ending will have everyone laughing! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The World-Famous Cheese Shop Break-in by Sean Taylor

There it was, between The Greengrocer's and The Underwear Outfitters. The Cheese Shop. It was stuffed full of cheese stinkier than old socks. And Daddypops said just what I knew he was going to... We are about to carry out the World-Famous Cheese Shop Break-In.

Daddypops says it will be as easy as 123 to get into the Cheese Shop...First he tells his children to just walk through the door and get the cheese...But THAT doesn't work. Then he makes a catapult and fires them into the shop...THAT doesn't work either. Finally Daddpops has his most brilliant idea ever. He gets a pickaxe, a shovel and a bucket and tells the children what to do. They will dig a tunnel to the Cheese Shop, and break through to the shop floor at dead of night. What could go wrong??
