US Kirkus Review » "Ho ho for the robbers/The cops and the robbers Ho Ho!" So goes the refrain to the Ahlbergs' account, in heel-kicking five-line stanzas, of how officer Pugh foils a London gang's Christmas-Eve theft of children's toys. The illustrations, in their Burglar Bill comic style but softer colors, provide the details; sometimes there are up to twelve small pictures per double page, functioning as sly footnotes to the jiggy narrative. In short, this is another of the Ahlbergs' brisk capers, with no great haul for anyone but amusing in its childlike touches - as when the five robbers knock Pugh to the ground, de-pants him then sit on him crying "Give up, give up!" (Kirkus Reviews)
