I Am the Messenger
 
By the author of the extraordinary international bestseller The Book Thief, this is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love. 
 
Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.
 
That's when the first ace arrives in the mail. That's when Ed becomes the messenger. Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary) until only one question remains: Who's behind Ed's mission?
 
This book is a 2005 Michael L. Printz Honor Book and recipient of five starred reviews.

The Book Thief
The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

Underdogs
From the bestselling author of THE BOOK THIEF

Before THE BOOK THIEF, Markus Zusak wrote a trilogy of novels about the Wolfe Brothers: THE UNDERDOG, FIGHTING RUBEN WOLFE, and GETTING THE GIRL. Cameron and Ruben Wolfe are champions at getting into fights, coming up with half-baked schemes, and generally disappointing girls, their parents, and their much more motivated older siblings. They're intensely loyal to each other, brothers at their best and at their very worst. But when Cameron falls head over heels for Ruben's girlfriend, the strength of their bond is tested to its breaking point.

We're proud to present these novels together for the first time, and to be introducing American readers to THE UNDERDOG, never before published in the United States. Fans of THE BOOK THIEF won't want to miss reading the novels that launched Markus Zusak's stellar career.

A Menina Que Roubava Livros (Em Portugues do Brasil)
A trajetoria de Liesel Meminger e contada por uma narradora morbida, surpreendentemente simpatica. Ao perceber que a pequena ladra de livros lhe escapa, a Morte afeicoa-se a menina e rastreia suas pegadas de 1939 a 1943. Tracos de uma sobrevivente: a mae comunista, perseguida pelo nazismo, envia Liesel e o irmao para o suburbio pobre de uma cidade alema, onde um casal se dispoe a adota-los por dinheiro. O garoto morre no trajeto e e enterrado por um coveiro que deixa cair um livro na neve. E o primeiro de uma serie que a menina vai surrupiar ao longo dos anos. O unico vinculo com a familia e esta obra, que ela ainda nao sabe ler.

Assombrada por pesadelos, ela compensa o medo e a solidao das noites com a conivencia do pai adotivo, um pintor de parede bonachao que lhe da licoes de leitura. Alfabetizada sob vistas grossas da madrasta, Liesel canaliza urgencias para a literatura. Em tempos de livros incendiados, ela os furta, ou os le na biblioteca do prefeito da cidade.

A vida ao redor e a pseudo-realidade criada em torno do culto a Hitler na Segunda Guerra. Ela assiste a euforica celebracao do aniversario do Fuhrer pela vizinhanca. Teme a dona da loja da esquina, colaboradora do Terceiro Reich. Faz amizade com um garoto obrigado a integrar a Juventude Hitlerista. E ajuda o pai a esconder no porao um judeu que escreve livros artesanais para contar a sua parte naquela Historia. A Morte, perplexa diante da violencia humana, da um tom leve e divertido a narrativa deste duro confronto entre a infancia perdida e a crueldade do mundo adulto, um sucesso absoluto - e raro - de critica e publico.

Getting The Girl
In this sequel to the award-winning FIGHTING RUBEN WOLFE, Cameron explores the ecstasy, the danger, and the cost of love.

Cameron Wolfe is a loser. He knows it. He's the quiet one, not a soccer star like his brother Steve or a charming fighter with a new girl every week like his brother Rube. Cam would give anything to be near one of those girls, to love her and treat her right. He especially likes Rube's latest, Octavia, with her brilliant ideas and bright green eyes. But what woman like that would want a loser like him?
Maybe Octavia would, Cam discovers. Maybe he'd even have something to say. And those maybes change everything: winning, loving, losing, the Wolfe brothers, and Cameron himself.

Underdog (Underdogs)
One day we will fight again, but for now we are wolves in a cage, waiting to be let out... The Wolfe family has fallen on hard times. Mr. Wolfe has had an accident at work and has been unemployed for months. Mum cleans longer and harder, and works a night shift at the hospital. Sarah gets drunk now and then. Older brother Steve wants to leave home, to forget about his lunatic family. When Cameron and Ruben find they can earn fifty dollars a win with an organized boxing racket, they take the chance. Ruben has talent for boxing and Cameron has heart at least. They need the money, but it’s really about self-respect. Boxing will change forever the way they see themselves. Author Markus Zusak pens a surprisingly complex and touching story that will linger long with readers. The language is hard-hitting, witty, and authentic - as are the emotions and action. Fighting Ruben Wolfe is not about boxing. It's about respect, stubborn pride, and real brotherly love. Fans of THE BOOK THIEF won't want to miss listening to the novels that launched Markus Zusak's stellar career.
