Greenlight Young Readers Book Group (FG) discusses The Thief Lord
Led by Greenlight receiving manager Grace and geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, our young readers book group meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month in Fort Greene to discuss great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For February, the group discusses The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke. Two orphaned brothers, Prosper and Bo, have run away to Venice, where crumbling canals and misty alleyways shelter a secret community of street urchins. Leader of this motley crew of lost children is a clever, charming boy with a dark history of his own: He calls himself the Thief Lord. Prosper and Bo relish their new "family" and life of petty crime. But their cruel aunt and a bumbling detective are on their trail. And posing an even greater threat to the boys' freedom is something from a forgotten past: a beautiful magical treasure with the power to spin time itself.
