the greatest thief who ever lived

Today, a funny thing happened... one of my books was returned to me by the librarian at school... a twist of the usual. It was Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier.

It's a great story, if you haven't read it yet... of a ten year old blind boy who has been schooled in the art of thievery. 

The first sentence is: "Now, for those of you who know blind children, you are aware that they make the very best thieves."

There is adventure and sword fights and monsters and magic.

"Of course, the age of great thievery has long since passed; today there are few children thieves left, blind or otherwise. At one time, however, the world was simply thick with them. This is the story of the greatest thief who ever lived. His name, as you've probably guessed, is Peter Nimble."

I hope the librarian read this book, she would have loved it.
