The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
In the book, The Thief Lord, two boys, Prosper and Bo, run away when they heard they were going to be separated. They decided to run away to Venice, a place their mother talked about a lot. When the two boys arrive at Venice, they meet a kid named Hornet. Hornet told them about how she was a part of a runaway gang who lived in a movie theater. So Prosper and Bo decide to join them. They meet the leader of the gang, Scipio. Scipio was known as the Thief Lord and stole jewels to buy clothes for the runaway kids. Everything was going smoothly till Scipio was asked to steal a wooden wing. Will Scipio be able to steal the wing or is he hiding something? Read the book to find out. I liked this book because it wasn't a book which you couldn't easily find out the ending. Rishi P.
