The magic of reading leads one girl to find her own story in this fantastical tale by illustrator and printmaker Graham Carter, following his debut picture book Otto Blotter, Bird Spotter. Olive is a shy girl who prefers reading about adventures to having them herself. But when a mysterious figure steals all of the books in town, she decides to set out straight into an adventure of her own. The thief, meanwhile, doesn’t quite know what to do with the stories he’s stolen so Olive must track him down and teach him the joys of reading - and sharing - stories.
