LEE RAVEN, BOY THIEF
by Zizou Corder
Puffin Paperback 2008
Lee Raven, boy thief, has stolen something he really didn't mean to. Now he faces a perilous flight through London (and the murky sewers below) as he tries to escape capture – because Lee has stolen the Book of Nebo, a book that has existed for thousands of years and has a different story in it each time you pick it - a story it has chosen specially for you. It's priceless, but more than that – it’s peculiar. Some will even kill to possess it. The future of Nebo is in Lee's hands – can he prevent the most dangerous ending of them all?
From the reviewers:
'I LOVE this book. It's the best children's book I've read in years, and once I finished it, I wanted to start it all over again. ... has a magical twist with every page. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant fun. What a great book.' - Heatseeker http://heatseekers.blogspot.com/2008/02/lee-raven-boy-thief-by-zizou-corder.html
Like Artemis Fowl, this is a rollicking good adventure that doesn't take itself too seriously. ... a wonderful story. Lots of fun and hard to put down. - Librarything
