Who’s that creeping down the street? Who’s that climbing up the wall? Who’s that coming through the window? Who’s that? … It’s Burglar Bill.

Burglar Bill lives all by himself in a tall house full of stolen property. Every night (after eating his stolen fish and chips) he goes out to work… stealing things.

But one day, Burglar Bill steals something very unexpected indeed!

The Janet and Allan Ahlberg classic is the perfect bedtime story for all little readers everywhere.
