Children believed to be 4-8 years olds have been apprehended filching an ancient pensioner's wallet. The lads upon questioning claimed that they have been lifelong Dickens' readers and that a local literary scholar had convinced them that a reenactment of Oliver Twist would be "jolly good fun!"

Upon questioning by by the book detectives Holmes and Watson, the supposed crime muse, Nigel Pagel-Hagel denied any involvement in corrupting the morals of youth. Pagel-Hagels explained: "All I did was read some great BritLit to the unwashed urchins of Londontown. If they got some crazy ideas that literature was like life and that imitation was the highest flattery what was I to do?"

When Holmes and Watson confronted him with the stolen booty in his flat, Sir Nigel could only say: "What's a bloke to do when little laddies bring you sweet gifts for your much appreciated licherature lessons?! I couldn't break the wee rotters' hearts. . ."
