5. BILLY HELPS MAX
|BY JAMES MINTER|
|ABOUT THE BOOK|
Ant's little sister Max wants her bike to be just as good as the boys. She has had enough of them making fun of her and her bike. She will show them. When Max sees some really cool stickers in the bike shop she can't help herself. She has to have them but she has not got the money for them.
"Billy Helps Max" looks at the issue of stealing. Stealing is taking something without permission or payment. Children sometimes steal for a dare, because they have no money or as a way of getting attention. Stealing is a lack of self-control.
Will Billy know how to do the right thing when he finds out what Max has done?
