The grammar of the dialogue is that of the working class, though perhaps someone can pinpoint the area. I’m guessing somewhere in the Midlands, but only because that’s where Allan grew up, and where he set his memoir, which he called The Boyhood of Burglar Bill. STORY STRUCTURE OF BURGLAR BILL PARATEXT We will criminalise those preparing to commit acts which constitute state threats offences and other harmful activity, meaning that the perpetrators can be disrupted before severe damage is done. On your map, draw the route that Burglar Bill and Burglar Betty took to return all the stolen items. Ebony Feare is a deliciously charismatic tortoise, languorous with an impressive range of reptilian faces and stances and a resonant singing voice. Stefan Stuart’s ever impatient hare, more boyish than leporine, makes for an appropriately lively contrast despite his weaker singing voice. She’s very excited to bring the wonderful story of Burglar Bill to life, and to work on her first production with Pied Piper!

Bill and Betty exchange pleasantries and after a short while Bill describes his unusual find the other evening. He introduces the baby to Betty however Betty is already fully acquainted with the baby because the baby is actually hers! Imagine you are Bill wanting to say sorry and describe the good things you are going to start doing. Who’s that creeping down the street? Who’s that climbing up the wall? Who’s that coming through the window? Who’s that? … It’s Burglar Bill. MARKETING COPY SHORTCOMING Get the face paints out.

Think what we would use nowadays in place of these things, you could photograph them or draw them and label them. It might be that some of you have very elderly relatives who have some of these things in their homes, perhaps you could phone them and ask about them.

Tina has written, adapted, directed and produced over twenty five plays for the company including a large scale national tour of Anne Fine's "The Book of the Banshee", and "A Little Princess" involving eight actors and eight young people. The owners of the houses remain unseen in this story, as do the police. But the storytellers do something interesting with police: rather than omit them entirely, they suggest nearby police. First with the proximity of the police station, next with the baby who wails like a police siren. These actions often take place in the shadows, but the harm is very real. We must be able to deter, detect and disrupt those state actors who seek to harm the UK by covertly targeting our national interests, sensitive information, trade secrets and democratic way of life.

The offence will specifically target the illicit acquisition or disclosure for a foreign power of sensitive trade, commercial or economic information, the value of which is linked to its secrecy.Tina's recent original plays include ‘My BIG Little Sister’, Robin’s Winter Adventure’, ‘The Big ENORMOUS Present’ and ‘DIG’ Pied Piper’s current play for babies and young toddlers which she wrote together with Nicola Sangster. When Bill learns he’s accidentally stolen a baby he doesn’t think to find its parents. ‘Clearly’ this baby was left on a doorstep because whoever gave birth to it doesn’t want it. At this point I’m reminded of how easily children acquire pets in stories. This has changed in recent children’s fiction. In the 1970s, preceding microchipping, children in stories would often find a pet and just keep it. Authors don’t do that now. There’s almost always at least some effort expended in trying to find a pet’s owner. THE BIG STRUGGLE

Use the book’s illustrations to show Burglar Bill’s home, the police station, the bakery, the park and all the places where stolen goods were returned. Get creative with cardboard. There's almost nothing you can't make with some cardboard, scissors, and a good idea. Burglar Bill is a thief and all of his possessions are stolen items, including the bed he goes to sleep in. On a typical night of thievery, Burglar Bill comes across a box with holes in, and takes it. Upon arriving home, he discovers that within the box is a baby. The baby and Burglar Bill end up spending a day together, but when Bill is putting the baby to bed, he hears an intruder downstairs. He confronts the burglar, who he discovers is Burglar Betty, and they talk to one another to find they have much in common. Bill mentions his new infant friend that he found the night before. He introduces Betty to the baby, only for them both to discover that the baby belongs to Betty. They both decide to give thievery up and return everything they stole to live happily together as a family.Overall, this is a very funny and engaging story. There are some lovely illustrations in the book. Furthermore, the authors have used some great moments of dialogue throughout the story which makes it even more enjoyable. When the Baby talks, I’m reminded of “The Child” a short story by Ali Smith, in which a woman finds a baby in her shopping trolley, takes it home and soon realises the baby has a foul mouth on it.
