Synopsis

Synopsis

A funny, silly new series perfect for fans of Dav Pilkey. Mary Amato is a star of state master and children's choice lists and returns to the age category of her popular Riot Brothers chapter book series with this new venture. 

When their parents steal a monkey from the zoo to help them pick pockets, our heroes rush into action and return the wily animal using disguises, inventions, and old-fashioned shoe leather. They also learn what a monkey can do in 11 minutes: 1) Stick his fingers in your right nostril. 2) Lick your eyebrows, pick his teeth, and then wipe his finger on your shirt. 

Giggles and guffaws will be the result of anyone reading Book One of Good Crooks.
Mary Amato

About Mary Amato

Mary Amato - Good Crooks Book One: Missing Monkey!
Mary Amato is making a name for herself as the author of quirky books that kids just love. Her debut novel, The Word Eater, appeared on many state lists, and The Naked Mole-Rat Letters followed suit, gathering even more fans. She is also the author of a chapter book series starring the Riot Brothers, which began with Snarf Attack, Underfoodle, and The Secret of Life: The Riot Brothers Tell All, about which School Library Journal wrote, "Move over Captain Underpants, a couple of new pranksters are in town.... (r)eaders will beg for a sequel." You can visit her online at www.maryamato.com.
