I like this book because it's hilarious and my friends like reading this book. The author obviously called the criminals stupid because the criminals "ARE" stupid and I, too think there're stupid but otherwise, it's a great book and i recommend it to you :)
Man, people are stupid! Read this for some really hilarious, true stories of dumb stuff people do! The text is written as very short stories with kind of odd collage-style illustrations. This will be a good choice for reluctant readers.
Very funny!

It's interesting to know that some criminals, bulgars, crooks doing some stupid action in their crime which make them easily caught. It tells me in here that probably some of them is not coming from uneducated environment. Also in some cases they did the action in the middle of drunkeness and end up sleeping and get caught.

After all I enjoy reading this light book.

Kids would love this amusing collection of illustrated stories about stupid criminals and how they got caught. Lively photographs make this a good choice for reluctant readers.
