My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Child Thief has remained one of my favorite books of all time. I read it a few years ago and it has been at the top of my list every time I talk about books. I don’t have a lot of favorites, but this one is truly so different and fantastic that it has been set aside.
Since I was a little girl, I loved Peter Pan and all stories about Neverland. But this one was such a new twist on an old favorite and I loved every word of it.
This isn’t a book for children. It is gory and dark. There are parts of the book where I wanted to hide my eyes, but I kept going because the book is intense and a ride worth waiting in line for.
Besides the well written story, the artwork included in the book is amazing. You will find yourself staring at the pages and the characters make so much more sense. I loved this inclusion. I have been a fan of Brom for a long time, but this book and art combination is perfection.
