So she was not suspecting and when the real drawing was stolen, she thought she was going to loss her job!

Masterpiece My Book Review
I rate this book Wikirific: WWW
I rated my book Wikirific because in my opinion it twes a grate tail. But I did not rate it Wikitastik because at sometimes it got a little out of hand with all the fantasy. So I had to ask my mom to help me make sense of it.
