Abstract:

When nine-year-old Liesel arrives outside the box-like house of her new foster parents, she refuses to get out of the car. Liesel has been separated from her parents - 'Kommunists' - for ever. In the care of the Hubermans, Liesel befriends Rudy Steiner and together they steal books - from Nazi book burning piles, from the mayor's library and from the rich people. In time, the family hide a Jewish boxer, Max, who reads with Liesel in the basement. By 1943, the Allied bombs are falling, and the sirens begin to wail. Liesel shares out her books in the airraid shelters. But one day the wail of the sirens comes too late.
