Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his thirteenth year, Will Sparrow, liar and thief, becomes a runaway. On the road, he encounters a series of con artists—a pickpocket, a tooth puller, a pig trainer, a conjurer—and learns that others are more adept than he at lying and thieving. Then he reluctantly joins a traveling troupe of "oddities," including a dwarf and a cat-faced girl, holding himself apart from the "monsters" and resolving to be on guard against further deceptions. At last Will is forced to understand that appearances are misleading and that  he has been his own worst deceiver. The rowdy world of market fairs in Elizabethan England is the colorful backdrop for Newbery medalist Cushman's new comic masterpiece. 

Synopsis:

From Newbery medalist Karen Cushman, the adventures of a lovable rogue and vagabond—a perfect picaresque.

Synopsis:

High jinks and high adventure fill every page of this exciting, panoramic novel set in Shakespeare's time. Widge, a young orphan indentured to a cold, unscrupulous master, has a special talent--the ability to write a secret shorthand. The master is determined to acquire a script of "Hamlet" at any cost, so it becomes Widge's duty to transcribe it--or else!
