This Thief Will Steal Your Heart
I am not a tremendously big fan of wordless picture books, but I make an exception for this French import, a debut from newcomer Rodriguez. In the opening spread, a group of animals awakes in a bucolic setting; soon they are lunching peacefully. Then, quelle horreur! A fox makes off with one of their hens. The chase is on. Rodriguez makes great use of the book's rectangular format -- panoramas follow the animal friends as they pursue the thief through the woods, over mountains, across seas (make note of what they use for a boat!), UNTIL -- What? Wait! Is this really a kidnapping? Or is it something else entirely? For sure, it's a delight from beginning to end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
