SPOILER ALERTI hate hate hate it when a book introduces magic 34ths of the way through I like fantasy thats not the problem But the ordinary people are supposed to discover the magic at the beginning of the book You know the children run through a mysterious old house in the country hide in a wardrobe and bam they're in Narnia Perfect Don't try and tell me a realistic story and then suddenly changesolve everything with magic that the characters just accept and move on I was adoring this book until that point

Herr der DiebeIrcumstances that will lead them to a fantastic spellbinding conclusionWinner of the 2000 Zurich Children's Book Award and the 2001 Children's Book Award from the Vienna House of Literature From the Cassette edition. Set in contemporary Venice around the time of both answering machines and cell phones this is not exactly what I expected which was a historical fantasy with lighthearted adventurous thieving in it What I got was a realistic tale of runaways and orphans trying to make it in a contemporary city Still bonus points for VeniceThere was a little bit of thieving but it was desperate the group of kids scraping by while living in an abandoned movie theater It was sad but heartwarming as well because of the friendships that they found It honestly took me a while to warm up to it until the second half when the focus shifted away from their sparse lives and into of an adventure what I'd been expecting in the first placeThere's a little bit of magic to it towards the end enough to shake things up There's payback that doesn't end up being malicious and wishes coming true that end up not being uite what was hoped for That made a bittersweet ending for some of the characters and an arguably happy one for others whether they deserved it or not I like how it wasn't all black and whiteOne drawback for me is that it was told in a very juvenile tone it's definitely for middle grade readers That and some of the word choices in the translation didn't fit and were distracting for example darn it was used a lot I'd probably give it 2 stars given how much I don't usually enjoy contemporary realistic stories But it was good for its target age group and I probably would have loved it when I was younger so I'm bumping it up a star
