Two brothers, Prosper and Bo, run away from their aunt to Venice. Here they find new friends and live on the streets to survive. Soon they find out a detective hired by their aunt is looking for them. Will they get caught and be sent back to their horrible aunt?
so theres this boy that is called the thief lord and he meets these 2 boys and they join his troop of thieves. but what happened before that was that the 2 boys ran away from their ant, and so theres someone looking for them and they go on fun journeys of a thieves life.
Welcome to Venice, city of canals, home to splendid basilicas, and roost for pigeons and winged lions. For the orphaned brothers Prosper and Bo, however, Venice is more than a paradise; it is a sanctuary that protects the two from their unpleasant aunt and uncle.
Amid abandoned movie theatres and alleyways, the brothers find refuge among unlikely companions. The tightly-knit group of young thieves led under the elusive "Thief Lord" offer Prosper and Bo shelter, home, and warmth.
But when a mysterious request arrives from an even more mysterious man, a sequence of astounding events is set in motion. As Prosper and Bo struggle to stay together despite their relatives' interference, the true identity of "the Thief Lord" is revealed and trust is tested. Amid all the commotion is the request which guides the brothers and their companions to "growing up".
A time-unraveling tale of magic and mystery, of which perhaps the greatest of all is the "coming of age".
