Storyboard Text

  • Liesel's ordinary world is her traveling on the train to Munich with her brother and her mother. "A train was moving quickly... The book thief and her brother traveled towards Munich, where they would soon be given over to foster parents"(Zusak 19)
  • Liesel's call to adventure is when she steals her first book. "The book thief had struck for the first time-the beginning of an illustrious career"(Zusak 29)
  • At first she fears about getting in trouble, for example by Hans. "A black book with silver writing on it came hurtling out and landed on the floor between the tall man's feet... he looked at the girl, who timidly shrugged"(Zusak 64)
  • Max is Liesel's mentor because she always thinks of him while she is stealing books. "Liesel had just told Rudy that she was interested in attaining another book from the mayor's house. In place of The Whistler... at Max's bedside"(Zusak 325)
  • Liesel crosses the threshold when she goes into the mayors house to steal a book. "Her eyes scanned the room and she could see The Whistler, sitting patiently on the mayor's desk...Liesel walked over, picked up the the book, and made her way cautiously out"(Zusak 259)
  • One test/challenge Liesel faces is when the mayor's wife makes Liesel feel bad for stealing the books by writing her a letter. "But she held the letter and rubbed her fingers on the folded paper as the steps grew heavier around her"(Zusak 370)
