Initially I rated this book 2 stars but by the time I finished this write up I realized I didn t really think the book was ok and lowered my rating to the lowest possible It may seem silly getting my undies in a serious wad over a mere children s book but it s precisely because it is a book devised for children that I feel compelled to come out strongly against it I d like to know what the editors at Viking were thinking when they approved this one to be marketed to such young readers Perhaps the author is nearly as great a conman as the hero of this book As subject matter it seems to me that the story of Robert Miller aka con artist Count Victor Lustig is better suited to an older demographic If a book about a conman wants to be directed at young children maybe PT Barnum is as crooked a character as they should learn about Many children s books have bad guys in them Kids are accustomed to there being a bully or thug lurking in the background of a cartoon comic book or picture book This however is one of the few children s stories I know of that hails the criminal casting them in the lead role It is suggested that the story is appropriate for ages 7 and up but I wonder if children younger than 14 or 15 are actually able to discern right and wrong in such a way as to understand that the main character of this story is not to be emulated but rather reviled Author Greg Pizzoli takes pains to describe how he found Miller s exploits to be all so incredible and felt motivated to create this book as though Robert Miller was Willy Wonka or Indiana Jones or Harry Houdini As illustrated Tricky Vic is a faceless thumbprint of a man duping dopily drawn victims an effect reminiscent of the all too cool Spy vs Spy from Mad Magazine Pizzoli seems to have conveniently forgotten that Count Lustig swindled fortunes from gullible people whose only real fault is to have been suckers Because this book is very innocently packaged I would strongly suggest that parents be on hand to provide guidance
