Cornelia Funke has the ability to describe a world in which reality and fantasy melt together in a magical mist. The Venice in which runaway children are sought by a strict aunt and an eccentric detective is not the real Venice but a dream world of dark alleys, derelict cinemas, lost treasures, strange unknown islands and elusive clues. Reach out and you catch a handful of mist - until the next chapter.
