This is the true story of one of the most crooked con men ever to have lived, a man whose infamous scheme led him to be known by the Secret Service, police, and admirers around the globe as 'The Man Who Stole the Eiffel Tower.'  A Junior Library Guild Selection 'What a con job! I mean that in the best possible way. Vic was tricky but so is Greg Pizzoli. His storytelling and mixed-media artwork is rendered with expert sleight of hand.' Lane Smith, Caldecott Honor winner for The Stinky Cheese Man and Grandpa Green

'It's hard enough to make a well-told story out of real-life things—it's almost unfair that Greg Pizzoli could also make it this pretty.' Jon Klassen, Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator of This Is Not My Hat
