The Whiz Mob and the Grenadine Kid Kindle Edition
From the Inside Flap
It is an ordinary Tuesday morning in April when bored, lonely Charlie Fisher witnesses something incredible. Right before his eyes, in a busy square in Marseille, a group of pickpockets pulls off an amazing robbery. As the young bandits appear to melt into the crowd, Charlie realizes with a start that he himself was one of their marks.
Yet Charlie is less alarmed than intrigued. This is the most thrilling thing that's happened to him since he came to France with his father, an American diplomat. So instead of reporting the thieves, Charlie defends one of their cannons, Amir, to the police, under one condition: he teach Charlie the tricks of the trade. What starts off as a lesson on pinches, kicks, and chumps soon turns into an invitation for Charlie to join the secret world of the whiz mob, an international band of child thieves who trained at the mysterious School of Seven Bells. The whiz mob are independent and incredibly skilled, and make their own way in the world--they are everything Charlie yearns to be. But what at first seems like a (relatively) harmless new pastime draws him into a dangerous adventure with global stakes greater than he could have ever imagined.
Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis, creators of the New York Times bestselling Wildwood Chronicles, have once again brought their one-of-a-kind, stunning vision to this heist adventure.--School Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
“Ellis’ charming illustrations adeptly capture the playful tone and decidedly period setting. A gleefully metafictional caper and middle-grade picaresque bound to appeal to discerning young readers.” (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
