    One thought on “Road to London”

    1. Barbara Mitchelhill is one of those authors I've suddenly become very aware of. I've heard great things about Run Rabbit Run so I was excited to pick up Road to London, her latest novel due out in April 2012. It's a novel set in Elizabethan London and tells the story of how Thomas becomes embroiled in both the theatre and a set of circumstances that could be life or death for one very important individual.Mitchelhill knows her history. She peppers the story with fact and detail that helps to fle [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this one and am certain that confident readers will love it too. It would also make an enjoyable shared bedtime read for developing readers. The historical detail really brings the era to life: a child would learn a lot about the Tudor period by stealth as they enjoy Thomas’s adventures. Thomas narrates the story and his charming voice quickly endears him to us. We first see him in his normal routine: attending school, interacting with his family, doing his chores and, of cour [...]

    3. I recently got this book from a donation spot in a local sainsburys. It was so unexpected but lovely to know that people pass on their love for reading with others. Road to London was the first book I picked up from the big pile and as I was reading the back of the book I could feel myself getting more hooked. I knew I had to take this book home so I paid my 50p and walked out a very happy book worm! "When Thomas flees to London in search of a life in the theatre, he meets his hero, William Shak [...]

    4. Review by Shelly“Plots, Treason and Drama! When Thomas flees to London in search of a life in the theatre, he meets his hero, William Shakespeare, and thinks his dream has come true.But Elizabethan London is a grimy place; full of scoundrels, treachery and murder. Thomas and his friend, Alice, find themselves caught up in a treasonous plot to kill the Queen.”I have to say that this kind of book is right up my street. I do love a good historical novel and this is an easy read. I know I am not [...]

    5. From page one I felt like I had stepped back into the 16th century. Barbara Mitchelhill has a created historical fiction dripping in atmosphere, bursting with vivid and detailed descriptions allowing us to see the world as William Shakespeare would have. You can tell that a huge amount of research must have gone into this book by the details concerning the Globe Theatre, the Queen's secret visits right down to the state of William Shakespeare's teeth.I loved the way the author brought this perio [...]

    6. Good, dependable storytelling, nicely paced, and not too long. Would recommend for 9+ crowd as a fun introduction to Shakespearean London and the man himself.
