Mini Review: Pilfer Academy by Lauren Magaziner
Escape From Mr. Lemencello’s Library
and Roald Dahl will gobble up this hilarious story about a secret boarding school for thieves-in-training!
George has never heard of Pilfer Academy, a top-secret school for
cultivating young crooks, until he's kidnapped as its newest student.
The teachers are kooky at best, and naughty does not even begin to
describe his sneaky, smart, and morally bankrupt new classmates. Between
disguise classes, cracking safes, and DIY gadgets, George becomes an
expert bandit and finds true friendship with Tabitha, his new
partner-in-crime. But everything is ruined when George comes to a
shocking realization: He is just too good-hearted to be a thief!
not thieving is not an option at Pilfer Academy, and "misbehaving"
students face Dean Deanbuggle's favorite punishment—the Whirlyblerg! In
order to gain their freedom, George and Tabitha must pull the biggest
heist the school has ever seen and reveal their true colors not as
thieves, but as kind (and, okay, mischievous) kids.
