Professional reviews

"Brilliantly narrated by Simon Jones, this enchanting tale of adventure, mischief, and magical outcomes is utterly charming. Jones expertly delivers the many quirky characters and sets the Venetian scene perfectly. Orphaned boys Bo and Prosper are running away from a mean aunt. They find themselves taken in by street kids who live in an abandoned movie theater. Italian phrases by the rascally gang, well handled by Jones, add atmosphere. The Thief Lord will steal your imagination as it delivers clever twists and turns throughout. This blend of Jones's practiced storytelling and the magic of Funke's lovely tale will leave you spellbound. D.L.M.
