This new early chapter book series introduces the reader to Jillian and Billy Crook, who are children of two real thieves. Jillian and Billy both harbor a secret--they actually don't want to steal things and commit crimes, they want to do good deeds! On the day that Jillian and Billy secretly go to the zoo to volunteer, their parents follow them and end up stealing a monkey, who they will train to be a pick-pocket. Its up to Billy and Jillian to return the monkey to its real home at the zoo. Of course, a few animals might also get released while trying to return the monkey but its all in good fun. The chapters are short with fun illustrations.
