The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke

syndetics-lcI listened to The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke on CD and I think Simon Jones does a really good job reading it.  This is a tale of two runaway brothers who find a home with the “Thief Lord” of Venice, and it turns into an adventure beyond their wildest dreams.  Between the author choosing every word just perfectly and Simon Jones having a different voice for each character, I felt like I was in the middle of the story.  Chase scenes, surprises, mystery, villains, fantasy…this story has it all so check it out!
