Stop, Thief! by Meg Harper

Jed is embarrassed by his family. They all love tap-dancing! And when a picture of his dancing dad appears in the paper, the bullies at school tease him. But when the corner shop gets robbed, Jed's dad is quick to follow on his trail. Jed pedals after them on his bike, and soon the whole town joins in the chase, through the park, around the pond and down the hill, but there's only one man who's going to catch the villain! Book band: Turquoise Ideal for ages: 5+

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
