This is a novella -- a book that's longer than a short-story, but not as long as a novel. It is fun! Right about Christmas-time, a burglar who has had considerable success in the neighborhood is caught in the act by a man who used to be his classmate. The burglar has been selling most of stolen goods in order to support himself and his sister. Some of the goods he gives to his sister, telling her he bought them at discount stores! And she believes it! The burglar and the man who caught him are trapped in the house by a blizzard. The burglar's sister is brought to the house, and that's when the fun really starts! A truly entertaining read for the whole family, and a surprise Christmas-present ending.

This edition of the book contains eight original illustrations, rejuvenated, and two additional Christmas illustrations that are unique to this edition of the book.
