The Bookstore Burglar by Barbara Maitland is a funny story about a “haunted bookstore” that a burglar breaks into. The burglar is eventually scared off by the “ghosts” which we know are just the mice throwing books around in the library. I liked this story because the illustrations are subtle and really tie the whole story together. For example, Westcott uses only the shadows of the mice in the cover, and up until the end of the story to keep the main plot a bit discrete. ( )
