Chip Ear the leopard invites his two best friends over for a sumptuous meal of buffalo one day. The friends eat their fill and Chip Ear hangs the left over meat in his tree. In the middle of the night, the meat is stolen! Red Hair the lion suspects that Four Tooth the hyena must have taken it, but Chip Ear isn t so sure. Based on the Chinese idiom, (liang shang jun zi), which is typically used to refer to a thief, A Thief in the Night highlights the importance of being honest and having self-discipline through the endearing characters and witty narrative. This humorous story with lively illustrations is suitable for readers of all ages."
