The Thief Lord was really good. I think Victor ( I can just imagine him!) and Hornet alot. I really recommend it. Also there is a Magic Roundabout film out now. So much for the one in The Thief Lord! Ida Spavento is alot like Elinor in Inkheart ( Another book by Cornelia Funke) .Scipio is so dark and mysterious, so it makes you want to read on.

I love The Thief Lord. I couldn't put my book down. I recommend it to everyone. It is a great book. Believe me you will love it as much as I do.

I love the Thief Lord because of the way it captured me. I am a quick page turner and I want to be a linguist when I grow up. I hate to read a book in another language completely because I don't capture the story competely, but when there are only a few words of Italian it is made easy and fun to learn a new language a bit at a time. Grazie for writing it, Cornelia Funke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey! In the translations in the back... You find out what Basta from Inkheart's name means... Honestly... who would name their kid, 'enough, that will do'?! O.o
