The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke

Bonjour lovely readers!
This is Aliah with my first ever post here on this wonderful blog. :)
Today, I will be reviewing an amazing book: The Thief Lord, by Cornelia Funke.

Welcome to the magical underworld of Venice, Italy. Here, hidden canals and crumbling rooftops shelter runaways and children with incredible secrets....

After escaping from their cruel aunt and uncle, orphans Prosper and Bo meet a mysterious boy who calls himself the "Thief Lord." Clever and charming, the Thief Lord leads a band of street children who enjoy making mischief. But the Thief Lord also has a dark secret. And suddenly Prosper and Bo find themselves on a fantastical journey to a forgotten place. What they discover there will change the course of their destiny.

I read this book in the Summer, and immediately fell in love with it. I love the twists and turns the author creates; making you wonder how this was all made. 
I was a bit confused in the beginning, but after a couple chapters the story picked up and I was hooked. I love how, in addition to the magic, the book seems to be realistic fiction. 
This book has so many pros, and is completely appropriate for all ages.
