Lock up your treasures! Here comes the world’s cutest criminal! Baby Frank might be little, but he knows just what he wants in life: a pet. But his parents say pets are for bigger kids. ‘Pets cost too much to keep’, they say. ‘Be happy with your teddy!’ But none of it makes any difference. Baby Frank STILL wants a pet. What’s a smart baby to do? Rob a bank, of course! But will money buy him the fluffy friend he dreams of? Look out – there’s a new criminal mastermind in town!
