really liked it
bookshelves: children-s, fantasy, for-school
Read in November, 2009

This was an exciting children's book that takes place in Venice. At first I thought it was historical fiction, but it actually takes place in the present. It was a good read, if very simple; the reason I gave it only 4 stars was because the ending was just too neat. It was like while Cornelia Funke was tying the ending in a bow she asked Charles Dickens to hold his finger down on the first knot. Anyway, I enjoyed reading it but was also taken by surprise by the fantasy element that came in about 3/4 of the way through.
