Description - The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

From the author of Bridge of Clay.

'Brilliant and hugely ambitious...the kind of book that can be life-changing' New York Times

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath.
Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up an object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, and it is her first act of book thievery.

So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found.

But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down.

Award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

'An original, moving, beautifully written book' The Age
