Ocean's 11 . . . with 11-year-olds, in a super stand-alone heist caper from Gordon Korman!

After a mean collector named Swindle cons him out of his valuable Babe Ruth baseball card, Griffin Bing must put together a band of misfits to break into Swindle's compound and recapture the card. There are many things standing in their way - a menacing guard dog, a high-tech security system, a very secret hiding place, and their general inability to drive - but Griffin and his team are going to get back what's rightfully his . . .

This is Gordon Korman at his crowd-pleasing best, perfect for readers who like a hoot, a howl, and a heist.
