Welcome to the magical underworld of Venice, Italy, where hidden canals and crumbling rooftops shelter runaways and children with incredible secrets... Prosper and Bo are orphans on the run from their cruel aunt and uncle. The brothers decide to hide out in Venice, where they meet a mysterious thirteen-year-old boy who calls himself the "Thief Lord." Brilliant and charismatic, the Thief Lord leads a ring of street children who dabble in petty crimes. Prosper and Bo delight in being part of this colorful new family. But the Thief Lord has secrets of his own. And soon the boys are thrust into circumstances that will lead them to a fantastic, spellbinding conclusion.

"Brilliantly narrated by Simon Jones, this enchanting tale of adventure, mischief, and magical outcomes is utterly charming." ( AudioFile)
"This is...a pretty nifty adventure set as brilliantly in its Venetian setting as a baroque pearl." ( Booklist)

Enjoyable Venice Fantasy Story

A touching story of two orphan boys’ life and adventures in Venice and the extra little bit of magic and wonder makes it a typical Cornelia Funke. The book is well laid-out, has a fine language, an interesting plot and very good descriptions of Venice. It is appropriate for children or for anybody older who enjoys an easy but by no means simplistic audiobook. If you like listening about drama, fantasy and magic setting in Venice, then this audiobook is for you.

Nicht nur die Story, die sofort mitreißt, sondern auch die Lesung selbst, sind spannend und atmosphärisch dicht.Habe mir dieses Hörbuch eigentlich nur heruntergeladen, um meine Sprachkenntnisse fit zu halten, war aber so begeistert, daß ich jetzt öfter in den Jugendbüchern stöbern werde.Leider spricht der Sprecher manchmal etwas undeutlich, nach kurzer Eingewöhnungszeit hatte ich mich daran gewöhnt.Unbedingt empfehlenswert!
