The Bookstore Burglar

The story was about Mr. Brown. He opened a store and then books dropped. The store is a ghost book store. Then the burglar went into the store and the burglar stole the spare key. Mr. Brown was paying attention to another person. Cobweb was chasing after the burglar and Mr. Brown was paying attention to a little girl. The ghost pushed the book so the book would hit the burglar on his head. Mr. Brown went to the burglar and said, ?Are you O.K.?? Mr. Brown closed the door and shut the curtains.

I like Cobweb when he slept in the bookshelf. He is my favorite character because he is smart, and he is a cat. My favorite part was when the burglar stole the spare key, and the mice dropped a book on the burglars head. Everyone came running to see what was happening to the burglar. I like the illustrations because they were funny and silly and crazy.
