Cops and robbers book characters
Cops and Robbers - Scholastic Kids' ClubA favourite sub-genre of Christmas tales for children is the festive robbery story. But where Bill and his squeeze Burglar Betty find redemption through love and return their presents, this tale has a whole gang of Ealing style robbers, with names like Grabber Dan, Billy-the-Bag and best of all crime Queenpin, Grandma Swagg. Pugh single handedly rounds up the gang in his underwear locking them up beneath the station, before being hoisted on to his colleagues shoulders at a joyous Christmas party. The details here are fantastic, including a bizarre map of the UK, the spare helmet shelf and a quick trip to the gents. Christmas is back on, but lock your doors, Grandma Swag is still on the loose. This is a fabulous favourite — and a brilliantly clever theme for Christmas too, I never would have thought of it.
