Praise for Will Sparrow's Road…


"A compelling coming-of-age road trip."
Kirkus

"Set in Elizabethan England, the novel is built upon Cushman's thorough research and solid understanding of the period."
Booklist

"[Cushman] manages the tricky balance of keeping her characters engaging and understandable for her audience while still making them very much of their time."
Horn Book

"Fascinating, sometimes seemingly preposterous, details are solidly corroborated in the informative author's note that reflects Cushman's extensive research."
School Library Journal

"Offering action, humor, and heart in equal doses, Cushman's story is, at its core, about creating and claiming a family of one's own."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Lively and amusing . . . . [Cushman's] details have the surprising aptness of an Elizabeth Enright story—or, to step outside children's books, a Raymond Chandler novel."
The New York Times Book Review

“Karen Cushman is a master of portraying personal transformation. . . . A warmhearted portrait of a boy coming to terms with himself and the world.”
Historical Novels Society

"As usual, Cushman is adept at bringing the past to vivid life, with evocative details from daily Elizabethan life and authentic, often humorous dialogue."
