Staff Reviews

The Sandwich Thief mixes a unique art style with the harrowing tale of one grade school-aged boy trying to find who stole his sandwich from his lunchbox. What follows is a tale of mystery that will captivate readers as much as making them laugh. Rarely are Middle Grade books as self-reflective and aware. Who knew a book so awesome could spring from a ham, cheddar and kale sandwich?

— From The Sandwich Thief, by Andre Marois


Marin loves the sandwiches his parents make for him every day they're different and more delicious than the last. One morning, someone dares to steal his favorite sandwich: ham-cheddar-kale. Furious, Marin begins a fevered and famished investigation to unmask the thief. The days go by, the suspects multiply, and Marin's sandwiches continue to disappear. This droll, graphic caper is a funny school mystery exploring the high stakes of low blood sugar. The first in a series, the book's witty text and graphic illustrations make this funny school mystery perfect for early and advanced readers alike and for anyone who's been the victim of lunchtime crime.
