My Little Thief by Augusten Burroughs
What’s it About?
An unforgettable story of friendship between a curious girl with a rich imagination and a winged thief with a very big heart.
New York Times bestselling author Augusten Burroughs, who has sold more than four million copies of his books, has written his debut picture book, an irresistible children’s story that showcases the rewards of empathy and generosity when making friends.
My Little Thief (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers) was inspired by a true account of an unexpected friendship between a young girl and a crow. This thoughtful story explores misunderstandings and the value of everyday treasures and is perfect for Spring reading roundups.
Chloe loves many things — bugs, the dark, and especially broken or forgotten objects. But she doesn’t seem to care for birds. When a mischievous crow appears in her backyard, Chloe steps out of her comfort zone and offers the curious creature a bite of her lunch. In return, Crow brings Chloe a beautiful button.
It’s an unforgettable story of friendship between a curious girl with a rich imagination and a winged thief with a very big heart.
