This term we will be reading the absolutely fantastic book, 'The Good Thieves' by Katherine Rundell.

We will be transported across the seas to New York, where we will encounter gangsters, circus artists and an amazing young lady called Vita, who will do anything to save her Grandfather's castle from the schemes of the evil Sorrotore!

We are in for a rollercoaster ride!
