A delightfully funny tale with expressive, detailed illustrations. * The Irish Independent *
[Baby's First Bank Heist] zips along in rhyming verse, telling the tale of a kid so desperate for a pet that he turns to a life of crime. Collins's drawings are so rich in detail that repeated reading pays off. * The Observer, Best Children's Books of 2018 *
A bouncy, laugh-out-loud rhyme. * The Observer *
As smart and funny as its title suggests ... with a fab ending that will delight a child and retro, sassy artwork, this is a classy picture book. * The Independent *
Children will love Frank's logic and naughtiness and it's hard to say which illustrations are more fun: the bank heists or the hidden menagerie ... Steve Collins's witty, expressive illustrations will delight young and old. Great fun! * LoveReading4Kids *
A corker of a book ... Pet-related preposterousness to make both children and adults splutter with glee; I'm sure this will quickly establish itself as a story time favourite. * Red Reading Hub *
It's a caper par excellence. * Read It Daddy! *

[T]he smart, bouncy rhyme, comic adventures and unexpected ending make Baby's First Bank Heist an absolute treat of a picture book ... you should buy it immediately. I can't wait to see what baby Frank gets up to next! * Armadillo Magazine *
