Title:       Loot:How to Steal a Fortune

Author:  Jude Watson

Target:   Grade 4-7

Series:   I do not know if there will be more books

What this book is about: 
When Alfie McQuin, master thief, falls to his death in Amsterdam, he leaves behind a son March to whom he has taught all his tricks of the trade.  His dying words are to “find jewels.” but unfortunately March is shipped off to a group foster home before his search has even begun. As luck would have it, the twin sister he never knew is also placed in the foster home.  They have both inherited their fathers “talents” so after recruiting two other foster kids they are off on an adventure to find the jewels promised by their dad in his dying breath.  However, there are a few bad guys in their way who would like nothing better than to see this gang of kids fail!

Why I love this book: 
Ok, who doesn’t love a good heist story?  It is great book full of successful cons, scheming villains and action around every corner.  As the kids have to work to collect seven moonstones scattered around the globe, they must use their most cunning skills to outwit the jewel owners and stay ahead of the bad guys, and they’re just kids.  What could be better?

Who this book is for: 
Perfect book for kids who like action where they are the heroes.

Final thoughts: 
Make sure to secure your valuables after your kids have read this one.  They may outwit you for great financial gain!
