Responses

  1. I love Burglar Bill. No one else I know has heard of it. I used to stomp all round the house saying ‘I’ll have that’.

  2. Hey, I used to read it to the Teen who loved it and I could barely escape out his room unless I read it! We also liked, Master Money – the millionaire, Mr Creep – the crook, Mr Tick – the teacher, Master Salt – the sailors son and heaven knows how many more of the series.
    I started the above, but have quite a few to add, but at least its a biginning! Hope you managed the sitemeter ok!
