The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke

This book is amazing!  I would totally recommend it any day of the week.  It drops you right in Venice, Italy with Prosper and Bo, two runaway orphans.  They only ran away because of their mother’s stories of Venice.  They join up with the Thief Lord and his gang.  The Thief Lord and gang steal items from the rich to make money to survive, but Prosper does not feel right.  Their Aunt sends a famous detective after them.  Secrets can be dangerous.  The book is edge of your seat exciting!  You will learn something you never would guess about the Thief Lord.  If you liked Harry Potter, you will like this book.  Can you handle it?

  1. Cupcake333, great review. Very well written. I also enjoyed this book and like you, appreciated the setting. I can't imagine what it would be like to have to live on the streets and fend for myself. Can you?
