Deskripsi

From the creator of the New York Times bestselling Wildwood Chronicles comes an original, humorous, and fast-paced middle grade novel about a band of child pickpockets—imagine The Invention of Hugo Cabret meets Oliver Twist.

It is an ordinary Tuesday morning in April when bored, lonely Charlie Fisher witnesses something incredible. Right before his eyes, in a busy square in Marseille, a group of pickpockets pulls off an amazing robbery. As the young bandits appear to melt into the crowd, Charlie realizes with a start that he himself was one of their marks.

Yet Charlie is less alarmed than intrigued. This is the most thrilling thing that's happened to him since he came to France with his father, an American diplomat. So instead of reporting the thieves, Charlie defends one of their cannons, Amir, to the police, under one condition: he teach Charlie the tricks of the trade.

What starts off as a lesson on pinches, kicks, and chumps soon turns into an invitation for Charlie to join the secret world of the whiz mob, an international band of child thieves who trained at the mysterious School of Seven Bells. The whiz mob are independent and incredibly skilled and make their own way in the world—they are everything Charlie yearns to be. But what at first seemed like a (relatively) harmless new pastime draws him into a dangerous adventure with global stakes greater than he could have ever imagined.

    Excellent story! The protagonist is a 12 year old boy named Charlie, son of an American diplomat. Charlie's life is boring to him, as he constantly moves around from city to city with his Dad. He is not very gregarious, and therefore has a hard time making friends. Until one day he does, make friends. He enters into a world quite different from his own, and he likes it. What happens next, well, Charlie is taken for a ride, not the kind where you are sitting in the back of a Lamborghini or limousine, no, but an exciting ride into an underground world. How will he justify the diplomat's son vs. "The Grendnadine Kid" whom he has become?

    Narrated by Bronson Pinchot. Twelve-year-old Charlie is the son of an American diplomat working in Marseilles, France. Charlie is lonely and friendless. He dreads the parties his father drags him to because he has nothing in common with the other kids. While people-watching in the plaza for a writing assignment, he meets a boy named Amir who pickpockets his pen. This auspicious encounter leads to Charlie falling in with a gang of kid pickpockets. He learns the tricks of their trade and helps out at jobs. It’s the first time he feels accepted and part of something. But should Charlie trust a gang of thieves? Pinchot has avuncular, pleasant reading voice. Characters presented with animation and humor. Reveals Europe as a fascinating and exotic place. Very entertaining, a read-aloud that engages.
