I've always been a fan of Coover's fun art style, and Tobin is a good storyteller. This book knocks it out of the park! Bandette is an irrepressible Parisian teenage master thief with the proverbial heart of gold and an affinity for first editions of good books. The police love to hate her but sometimes need her help. Her rival "Monsieur" wants to save her life, even though she's after his reputation as the world's greatest thief. The ballerinas and street urchins just want to help. And poor Daniel! Will his heart belong to the mysterious Bandette forever? This book has a retro, French/Belgian adventure comics feel, like Tintin, but completely fresh. Keep your eye out for the female matador!

This is for older kids/YA and up. There is a bit of "damn" from the detective, and one comment about his underwear that I really wouldn't want my six year old repeating on the playground. (He called his aunt a "big booty ho" once when he heard it at school, so we try to be careful until his judgment matures a little.) I’m sad to wait because I know he would love all the adventure!
