Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.
Even though this is a kids book, I bought it, because Sly Cooper is one of my favorite video games. The book was only a dollar too, and I do love bargains.
As for the story, I don't know whether or not it's canon, but it's pretty cute. It seems to take place between Sly 2 and Sly 3, and it's about Sly and his friends trying to steal a statue, and Carmelita, as always, is close on their heels. I really liked when Sly reminisced on some memories, like his first mission with Bentley and Murray when they were still in the orphanage and the time when he first met Inspector Fox. Canon or not it has some good background info on the characters.
