Foreword: The Thief is a children's story based on drama that takes place in many backyards across the world. The story, based on pictures, is appropriate for children between the age of one and three years old. The idea of the story came to the author while she was experimenting with her rented telephoto lens. The book was first published on February 11, 2014, and got reprinted many times since then.
She comes over the fence, across the neighbor's yard, tip-toeing perilously on tree branches.
She peeks cautiously through the branches; stands up to see if the coast is clear. And waits patiently.
She then slowly climbs down. While climbing down, she carefully checks out some holes to see if the loot can be stacked there.
Victory at last -- the feeder is under my control now. Shoo! off you go...this does not belong to you birds now. THIS IS MINE -- EVERY TEENY-WEENY MORSEL OF SUNFLOWER SEED IS MINE.
But, victory does not last long. Protector of feather-friends and yard is near-at-hand. They come roaring out of the door, galloping fast on their feet, and barking the sweet songs of victory. They go round and round the yard, howling and growling, jumping up and down with the hope that one day such jumps will allow them to soar up into those darned high tree branches and get hold of the thief.
Run! run! run! scamper! scamper! scamper! Climb up the tree fast for dear life. Phew! that was close. Am I high enough from those two $#&****#!!? Yesss!! Good, that I grabbed some more seeds -- all those scampering and climbing surely makes this girl hungry. At least up here in the high I can sit peacefully and enjoy my booty.
Peace at last. All those food has made me sleepy. Let me take some rest for a while before I again walk all the way back to my home. Why do these humans have to cut up the trees and put them in a funny way on the ground! Walking on them is dangerous.
