Product Description

On Christmas Eve, villainy is afoot in London Town! London’s robbers have cooked up a plot to steal all the toys they can lay their hands upon! As brave Officer Pugh and his men leap into action to save the children’s toys, will the heroic cops be able to stop Grandma Swagg and her naughty gang?

A firm favourite with kids and grown-ups everywhere, it is criminally funny!

Author/Illustrator

Allan Ahlberg

7079 allan ahlberg 206756

Allan has been delighting children of all ages for more than thirty years. Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring. Innovative, funny and moving, his work encompasses storybooks, picture books, easy readers, joke books and novels as well as poems.

Many of his books were collaborations with his wife, Janet, an illustrator, and they quickly became one of Britain’s leading author/illustrator teams.

Influenced by comics and cartoons, their perfect partnership went on to produce masterpieces including Peepo!, Each Peach Pear Plum and The Baby’s Catalogue.

Janet sadly died in 1994, but Allan has gone on to work with other illustrators and is still producing lots of new books.

    This was one of the very first Allan Ahlberg book I got when I was 4 or 5 years old. He’s one of my favourite writers still.

    When i was little, cops and robbers was one of my favourite kiddy books, because i loved marvelling at all the ugly villains, and waiting to see if they would get captured!
