Bo and Prosper's mom had always spoken lovingly of Venice, Italy. So, when she dies, leaving the two boys orphaned, they can't think of a better place to reinvent themselves. Off they go, from the familiar streets of Hamburg to the winding waterways of Venice, where adventure awaits.
Before long, the brothers fall in with a community of young runaways happily living together in an abandoned, old theater. Their leader? Scipio, a Robin Hood-like persona known as Thief Lord, who steals from the rich to support his gaggle of homeless kids. Petty thievery takes a more serious turn when Scipio is asked to steal a broken, wooden wing, said to be missing from a magical carousel that turns adults into children and children into adults.
This well-told tale became a breakaway, international hit for bestselling German author Cornelia Funke.
