Eric, a three-year-old from Gaspésie, is a being who lives only for pleasure. Drinking from his bottle, he tastes sugar for the first time, and is immediately hooked. From that point on, Eric and his sister go to greater and more desperate lengths to satisfy their sweet tooth, all the while contending with the annoyances of the police, medical authorities, and boiled vegetables. Sugar Thieves is a fun, intelligent fable of greed and hedonism, as well as a tribute to glucose and its wonderful derivatives.

Eric Dupont was born in Gaspésie in 1970. He is a teacher and translator in Montréal. Sugar Thieves (Voleurs de sucre) is his first novel. His second novel La Loguese won the French language CBC's Canada Reads (Le Combats des livres) in 2008.

Sheila Fischman is the winner of the Canada Council Translation Prize, the Governor General's Literary Award for Translation, and the Molson Prize. She is a member of the Order of Canada. The Perfect Circle, her translation of Le cercle parfait by Pascale Quiviger was shortlisted for the 2006 Scotiabank Giller Prize.
