Tweens Book Reviews

The Thief Lord

My sister-in-law, Kathy, recommended the author Cornelia Funke and some of her novels. When I checked my library, I found "The Thief Lord" and thought this might be a good novel to read by Ms. Funke.

I did enjoy the story and found that it kept my interest throughout. There were several predictable aspects to the story where I guessed what would happen next. I do like surprises and there were a few here, as well. But I do think that any Tween would love this book and probably look for others by the author.

The main character, Prosper, along with his little brother Bo, are in Venice running from the detective who was hired to bring Bo back to their aunt and uncle. Since the aunt plans to put Prosper in an orphanage, the two, who want to remain together, are on the run. After meeting up with several other homeless kids, the twosome embark on many adventures that lead them to a life they both long for.

I rate "The Thief Lord" 3.5 out of 5 stars.
