There's chocolate in the bedside drawer – stolen chocolate! It's not easy for a chocolate thief to sleep at night. Imagine if someone saw what you were doing? When there's a sudden knock on the window one night, our young hero is lured out into the darkness and ends up in the middle of what turns out to be a thiefs' gathering, where the scariest and strangest thiefs meet up – those who have done far worse things than stealing chocolate. But what is it they want with a simple chocolate thief?
