The Book Thief

The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak

Werner Meminger

Character Analysis

Werner is Liesel's little brother. He dies on the train when their mother is taking them to their foster parents, the Hubermanns. We don't know much about his relationship with Liesel before he dies. But from the extent of her grief, we can imagine they were close.
