Reviews

* 2023 Northern Lights Book Award

for Best Middle Grade Fantasy Novel

"The setting is glittering with intrigue and mystique. The prose shimmers, and Schur deftly fences

with wordplay and imagery. The Word Dancer is lyrical and propulsive, brimming with amusing and

innovative ideas." - Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize - Judge's Report


"A page-turning fantasy adventure for kids that enlightens, entertains, and, ideally, empowers." -

Kirkus Reviews


"Oftentimes in medieval books, there's too much clashing and not enough thinking, but The Word

Dancer changes that... recommended for readers aged 8-12, who enjoy classic books set in medieval

times, with a hint of fantasy. If you love Redwall, Robin Hood, or stories about King Arthur, then

you'll love this book!" - Readers' Views


"Out of hundreds of entries [this] book stood out. We are confident it will stand the test of time,

and children will enjoy [the] story for

generations to come." - Northern Lights Book Award
