The Tear Thief

Each night, in the hours between supper and bedtime the Tear Thief carries her waterproof, silvery sack over her shoulder as she soundlessly steals the tears of every child who cries. But what does she do with all of those tears? Written by best-selling poet Carol Ann Duffy, this is a modern tale that illustrates a classic message which teaches children to value true feelings.
