About The Book

Ocean’s Eleven meets The Secret Life of Pets in The Great Pet Heist series that follows a ragtag group of pets who will do whatever it takes to avoid being sent to the pound—all three books now together in a collectible hardcover boxed set!

The pets of the Strathmore building have a penchant for solving problems. Oscar the mynah bird is the brains of the operation. Walt the cat brings slyness and slink. Marco and Polo are the reconnaissance rats. And Butterbean’s cute and slobbery persona never rouses suspicion.

The furry and feathery friends put their deductive skills and friendship to the test to pull off the heist of the century to fix Mrs. Food’s money problems, solve a ghostly mystery in Mrs. Third Floor’s apartment, and stop a group of rowdy racoons from ruining their friend’s reputation.

This delightful hardcover boxed set includes:
The Great Pet Heist
The Great Ghost Hoax
The Great Vandal Scandal
