The Real Thief is a mystery book and I love mystery books. The animals in the book are unique, especially the goose. The goose is smart to put rushes on his feet when people are looking for him. Nobody really finds out who took the rubies. This book is a good book for mystery lovers. -- Z.C.D.

I loved this book. There was suspense, and you can read it fast. If you love animals you will love this book!

The Real Thief is a terrific book about a goose who is accused of stealing but isn¿t the real thief. I liked it when Gawain, the goose, flies away because the people at his trial all voted him guilty. I liked the way the author described the treasure house, where the king keeps all his money, jewels, and precious items, because it seemed so real. The pictures were excellent. I recommend this book to people who like to read about crime.
