Brief Thief by Michael Escoffier and illustrated by Kris Di Giacomo is, at its core, a story about ethics. Leon the chameleon is having a normal day. He eats a hearty breakfast, then goes out to sun himself. Suddenly he feels the urge… to relieve himself. Look, we’ve all been there! Leon finds a nice tree to hide behind to do his business but – bad luck – no toilet paper. He does however happen to see a pair of underwear. He utilizes and discards it. But then he hears a voice chastising him for the deed. There’s no one around. Is this voice… his conscience? It reminds him its not nice to use other people’s things, and how does he know those underwear don’t belong to someone who was coming back for them. Leon knows the right thing to do is to clean the underwear and leave them where he found them. Someone DOES come back to reclaim them, and who it is will have you and your child giggling with delight. Check out this mysterious story today! See this book listed in our catalog
