THIEVES! (Juvenile nonfiction)
Annick Press, Toronto, 2005.
“Ten well-planned major robberies reveal the ingenuity of
the criminal mind. The devious men in these fascinating accounts are no
ordinary thieves. Realistic dialogue and step-by-step descriptions make this
work suspenseful and exciting. For true, rousing adventures Schroeder’s
compilation can’t be beat.” Ann Brouse, School Library Journal, New York.
“Andreas Schroeder quickly grabs the audience’s attention in
the introduction of this fantastic book with an enticing brief description of
infamous criminal minds. Schroeder’s diction is filled with vivid description
and humourous twists that juvenile readers will find appealing and easy to
understand. This book will make an excellent addition to a class and/or school
library.” Anne Hatcher, Quill & Quire
“A real page-turner! Schroeder’s ten stories are all true,
well researched and read like exciting, action-packed police novels. They make
the likes of Enron executives look like small-time amateurs.” Maryleah Otto, The Muskokan.
