Read full description of the books The Real Thief:This was more of a book I liked rather than a book I loved. Gawain the goose is falsely accused of a crime he did not commit and the first part of the book is from his point of view. After he is found guilty and escapes, the book continues from the perspective of Derek the rat. Derek is the real thief and didn't believe that Gawain would be convicted because of his good reputation. When it happens anyways, Derek is left feeling very guilty that Gawain is convicted of a crime that Derek committed.
This is a rather short chapter book with some illustrations. There are a lot of opportunities to discuss this with kids. I loved this site for questions: http://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy...
Read information about the authorWilliam Steig was born in New York City in 1907. In a family where every member was involved in the arts, it was not surprising that Steig became an artist.
He published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968, embarking on a new and very different career.
Steig's books reflect his conviction that children want the security of a devoted family and friends. When Sylvester, Farmer Palmer, Abel, Pearl, Gorky, Solomon, and Irene eventually get home, their families are all waiting, and beginning with Amos and Boris, friendship is celebrated in story after story.
