It is 1939. In 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 forever when she picks up a single object, abandoned in the snow. It is The Gravedigger`s Handbook, and this is her first act of book thievery. So begins Liesel`s love affair with books and words, and soon she is stealing from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor`s wife`s library . . . wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times, and when Liesel`s foster family hides a Jew in their basement, nothing will ever be the same again. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time. SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION with exclusive extra behind-the-scenes material from the author.
