From the creator of Otto Blotter Bird Spotter comes a brand-new oceanic adventure by author and illustrator Graham Carter. The Story Thief with its shimmering foiled cover and atmospheric colour pallet emerges a new timeless classic published by Andersen Press.
Shy and retiring Olive seeks comfort in books and stories and loves nothing more than bedtime reading with her father. From a seafaring family Olive is used to adventure but when a creature from the deep visits Olive's house and pinches not just one of her beloved books but ALL of them and then ALL of the books in the whole village, courageous little Olive takes immediate action.
With vibrant thoughtfully designed spreads throughout young readers will instantly be transported straight into the centre of the story. In some of the spreads you might even be lucky enough to spot Graham's real-life family happily listening to a story.
