Reviews

"Steig's captivating style and tongue-in-cheek humor bring to life an endearing set of animal characters with some extremely human foibles." --Booklist"Impossible to resist." --Kirkus Reviews"In this age of poorly thought out endings to books, it's a treat to end with one of Steig's many stunning last lines, this one from The Real Thief, which he singled out as his favorite among his books: 'There was peace and harmony in the kingdom once again, except for the little troubles that come up every so often even in the best of circumstances, since nothing is perfect.'" --Los Angeles Times
