Summary: Ophelia von Hairball V has a longstanding rivalry with her relative, Pierre. Both are thieves but Ophelia is classier and their grandmother favored her. In this book he tries to prevent her from participating in the latest heist in Paris so that he can win instead.
Likes: Ophelia and her seventeenth Inventor, Oscar, are a really funny team. Ophelia is classy, sassy, and a bit of an antihero. Mostly he’s the tagalong, comic relief, but he has his moments. Pierre looks like a bond villain.
Dislikes: Eventually Ophelia gives things back but technically she is stealing things.
Overall I pulled this off the shelf because it had “snazzy” in the title and it was a lot of fun. I’d recommend it to people who like books with comics and paragraphs of prose.
