Cops and Robbers

On Christmas Eve, villainy is afoot in London Town! London’s robbers have cooked up a plot to steal all the toys they can lay their hands upon! As brave Officer Pugh and his men leap into action to save the children’s toys, will the heroic cops be able to stop Grandma Swagg and her naughty gang? This riotous romp of rumbustious fun from Janet and Allan Ahlberg is a marvellous swag-bag of slapstick giggles and comical characters. A firm favourite with kids and grown-ups everywhere, it is criminally funny!

    This was one of the very first Allan Ahlberg book I got when I was 4 or 5 years old. He’s one of my favourite writers still.
