  • The Thief cover

    The Thief

    Written by Renata Hopkins 

    illustrated by Andrew Burdan

    In this lively mystery story, Sophie’s treasure has gone missing. Sophie and her cousin Manu make a plan to catch the thief – though students will discover that there is more than one “thief” in this story.

    The Thief has a series of short chapters, giving students an opportunity to develop reading “stamina” on a longer story and to carry ideas across longer sections of text.
