Cornelia Funke is the internationally acclaimed, bestselling author of The Thief Lord, Dragon Rider, and the Inkheart trilogy, along with many other chapter and picture books for younger readers. She lives in Los Angeles, California, in a house filled with books. The genuinely magical twist The Thief Lord takes towards the end of the book fits in beautifully with the character of Venice. Funke has peppered the children's dialogue with Italian words, the meaning of which is easily inferred from the context. However, for anyone who might be confused, there is a glossary at the end of the book. The characters are likable, their worries easily understood.

It was autumn in Venice when Victor first heard of Prosper and Bo. The canals, gleaming in the sun, dappled the ancient brickwork with gold. But the wind was blowing ice-cold air from the sea, reminding the Venetians that winter was approaching.
The Thief Lord never slept with his followers in the Star-Palace. No one knew where Scipio spent the nights, and he never spoke about it, although every now and then he would drop a mysterious hint about an abandoned church. Riccio had tried to follow him once, but he had been spotted immediately by Scipio, who had gotten so angry that afterward none of them even dared to watch him when he left. Their leader came and went as he pleased, and they had gotten used to it. He sometimes turned up three days in a row and then they wouldn't see him again for nearly a week. Finally the book slipped from her fingers, and her eyelids drooped. When Scipio finally arrived, they were all fast asleep. Prosper wasn't sure what had woken him - Riccio mumbling in his sleep or Scipio's quiet steps.
Cornelia Funke observes the city with a child's eye. "There were so many hiding places, so many narrow alleys with names no one could remember - some of them with no names at all. Boarded-up churches, deserted houses. The children support themselves by scavenging and stealing. In spite of his carnival mask and his high-heeled boots, the children are aware that he can barely be older than themselves. Nevertheless, they believe his tales of high crime, and he has the loot to prove it.
