Caught an interview with the actor Matt Damon yesterday while he is at the Venice Film Festival premiering a new movie. I have always wanted to go to Venice which reminded me of one of my favorite books in recent years.
So in honor of the Venice Film Festival taking place this week I am doing a flashback title, The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke. This is great book not just for young readers but for adults too!
This is the story of two brothers on the run in Venice and their adventures with a ragtag group and the mystery surrounding them. Cornelia Funke really gives the reader a sense of Venice and all its beauty and wonder. Anyone who reads it is totally transported to another world!
