Ho Ho for the Robbers, The Cops and the Robbers, Ho Ho!

I remember being about 6 years old, and reading this the book shop where my mum bought it for us. As far as I remember, it celebrated the criminals as well as the cops - do they write kids books like that anymore?

Umm, I had this book as a child, really thoughtful detailed illustrations, brilliant story. Not so much a celebration of the criminals though, they appear to have the upper hand when they're sitting on officer Pugh, but he springs up, beats the living daylights out of them and puts them in the cells, returning all the stolen goods to the children. Message firmly in the "commit crime, get a shoeing and go to jail" camp! All good stuff!
