Stephen Collins and Jim Whalley will be here on Friday the 22nd June, 6.30-8.30pm, to celebrate the launch of their brand new Bloomsbury children's book Baby's First Bank Heist!

The subject of a fierce battle for publishing rights, Baby's First Bank Heist is the first book in a new series that's sure to hit big. Guardian cartoonist Stephen Collins brings all of his illustrative wit and whimsy to a story by newcomer Jim Whalley, telling the story of a pint-sized criminal mastermind.

Move over, Bonnie and Clyde, because there's a new criminal mastermind in town ... Baby Frank! Baby Frank's parents say that he can't have a pet – 'Pets are for older kids', 'Be happy with your teddy', 'They cost too much to keep' – which leaves Baby Frank with a BIG problem because he REALLY wants a pet. What's a baby to do ... ? Rob a bank, of course! But will money buy Baby Frank the fluffy pet he so desperately wants?

Stephen and Jim will be here on Friday June 22nd from the earlier-than-usual time of 6.30-8.30pm, so you can sneak the kids in before bedtime! If you can't make it but would like a signed copy, you can pre-order either the hardcover or softcover via our webstore now for mail order or in-store pick-up.
