A young boy loves to imagine that he and his stuffed animal are pirates.  One day, he runs out of props for his adventures and decides to sneak off with his sister's toy.  She is not pleased, and a cat and mouse chase soon follows.  He eventually gets disciplined for his actions, but he quickly notices that something is amiss.  Different toys start to disappear, including HIS favorite stuffed toy.  If it is not the young boy who is taking the toys then who can the troublemaker be?

Lauren Castillo's The Troublemaker is a simple story about a boy who learns the value of sharing and compassion.  Ms. Castillo's pen and ink are well matched with this story, which promises to delight young children.  

For Pre-K-2nd grade.
