The magical multi-award-winning modern classic from master
storyteller and New York Times-bestselling author, Cornelia
Funke.
'A completely delicious read.' THE
OBSERVER

Winter has come early to Venice.
Two
orphaned children are on the run, hiding among the crumbling canals
and misty alleyways of the city. Befriended by a gang of street
children and their mysterious leader, the Thief Lord, they shelter
in an old, disused cinema.
On their trail is a bungling
detective, obsessed with disguises and the health of his pet tortoises.
But a greater threat to the boys' new-found freedom is
something from a forgotten past - a beautiful magical treasure with
the power to spin time itself ...
