For ages 9 and up; basis for the fun 2006 film of the same name (we enjoyed the book more). 'Welcome to the magical underworld of Venice, Italy, where hidden canals and crumbling rooftops shelter runaways and children with incredible secrets... Prosper and Bo are orphans on the run from their cruel aunt and uncle. The brothers decide to hide out in Venice, where they meet a mysterious thirteen-year-old boy who calls himself the "Thief Lord." Brilliant and charismatic, the Thief Lord leads a ring of street children who dabble in petty crimes. Prosper and Bo delight in being a part of this colorful new family.But the Thief Lord has secrets of his own. Soon the boys are thrust into circumstances that will lead them to a fantastic, spellbinding conclusion.'; Spine ends lightly bumped, a few smudges to page edges. Beautiful unclipped dust wrapper has faint edgewear. A lovely copy indeed. ; 'The Thief Lord invites them on a magical adventure to a land of forgotten mysteries that will change their lives forever. This exciting tale of fun, flight, and freedom is sure to enchant readers and keep them guessing up until a breathtaking finale. Recommended.
