I AM A THIEF
BY ABIGAIL RAYNER
ILLUSTRATED BY MOLLY RUTTAN
Join us for Sunday storytime with Larchmont local and illustrator Molly Ruttan who will be sharing her new children's book I AM A THIEF!
When Eliza Jane Murphy—line leader, captain of the worm rescue team—impulsively pockets a sparkly green stone from her classroom’s “Exploring Green” display table, her heart crumples.
My heart stopped singing. My letters went wonky. I was too heavy to swing!
I wanted to put it back . . . But what if someone saw?
But when she discovers that nearly everyone in her family took something once in their lives—from her baby brother and mom, to her nana with her sausage-stealing dog—Eliza overcomes her shame to make things right.
A hilarious and heartfelt story about stealing and finding the courage to do the right thing.
"This humorous story speaks to anyone who has made a regrettable mistake, rounding it out with a gently ironic surprise final spread...Hilarious and sweet, with a gentle, affirming moral."
