The Lovereading4Kids comment

Brilliant time-travelling adventures. Toby is magiced back to Victorian London, into Alfie Trott’s life, and finds himself picking people’s pockets, with one eye out for the peelers.

Readers of Horrid Henry and the Horrible Histories will love it and in addition we think that even the most reluctant of readers, particularly boys will really relate to Toby and his historical exploits.

The titles in the series so far and in order are Keeping Sneaky Secrets, Dodging the Donkey Doo, Sludging Through the Sewers, Mucking about with Monkeys, Picking People’s Pockets and Hogging all the Pig Swill.

Synopsis

Toby Tucker: Picking People's Pockets by Valerie Wilding

This time Toby is magicked back to Victorian London, into Alfie Trott’s life, and finds himself picking people’s pockets, with one eye out for the peelersI was just dipping a nicely bulging pocket when something gripped my neck. My stomach scrunched up - a peeler! I whipped my hand out of the pocket, and froze. A hoarse voice whispered, “I told you to stay off Mr Barkitt’s patch. Didn’t I?” As he said, “Didn’t I?” he shook me by the neck. I was stretched so tall I thought I’d lose my trousers. The owner of the fat pocket was smirking at me. Fool didn’t know how near he’d come to being robbed!
