Synopsis

Izzy the Very Bad Burglar by Amy Proud

Izzy comes from a family of excellent burglars. But every time Izzy takes something that doesn't belong to her, she gets a bad feeling in her stomach that won't go away. She tries to tell her parents about the bad feeling, but whenever she mentions it, they tell her she needs to be a good burglar. Izzy finds ways to make the funny feeling in her stomach subside. She and her friend, Frog, start by tidying up as they burgle. They make the beds, dust, wash the dishes, and do the laundry. When the people come home, some of their things will be gone ...but at least they won't have any chores to do. But that isn't quite enough. So Izzy also starts baking her special double chocolate brownies with gooey caramel chunks. When the people realize they've been burgled, at least they will have a nice, tidy house with no chores to do and something sweet to eat. But that isn't quite enough either. Will Izzy ever find a way to get rid of this funny feeling she gets every time she has to steal? Will she find a way to be a good burglar and a good person, too? Readers will fall in love with this little troublemaker with a very big heart. A sweet picture book with an important message about doing what's right and not giving in to peer pressure for children ages 3 to 6. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers--picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
