9780099433972: Bob Robber and Dancing Jane

Bob Robber only came out at night and the night had got into him. He envied Dancing Jane's light feet and happy dancing, so he tried to steal her shadow. This striking, poetic text along with magical illustrations offer an older picture book audience a thought-provoking allegory of how simple goodness can overcome the darkness that can be in all of us.

From the Publisher:

Young Bob Robber lives alone in a dingy old cottage. He comes out only at night, and it is as if the darkness is within him. Then one night, he sees Dancing Jane. Her feet are light and her dress is white as snow—and he envies her happy dancing. But Bob Robber cannot dance, and so he does the only thing he can think to do: he steals Dancing Jane’s shadow. But the shadow cannot dance without its owner, and Jane is bereft; dreaming of her sad face, Bob resolves to return it to her. The next night he waits by the road. Then, for the first time in his life, he asks for something instead of stealing it—he asks Jane to teach him to dance. As she takes his hand, she dances the cobwebs off his coat and the darkness from his soul, leading him into the morning light. A lyrical tale of human kindness and redemption.

From the Inside Flap:

The poetic text and magical illustrations offer an older, picture book audience an interesting allegory of how simple goodness overcomes the darkness that can exist in us all.

Bob Robber lived alone and only came out at night. His hair was black as bats and his eyes the colour of the new moon. One summer night he saw Dancing Jane -- ?Her feet were light, her eyes were brown and her dress was white as winter snow.? This is the story of how Bob Robber steals Dancing Jane?s shadow and then, full of remorse decides to return it and, for the first time in his life, asks for something instead of stealing it -- he asks Jane if she will teach him to dance.
