Review: The Ship of Stolen Words

The Ship of Stolen Words by Fran Wilde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful book that offers children a chance to reflect upon the words they use and how they use them. From "I'm sorry" to "I love you" the power and magic of words properly used shines in this charming fantasy for middle graders. Sam and Tolver are two boys who struggle with doing the right thing, for different reasons. Their story will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced an apology that wasn't heartfelt, or who took shortcuts their parents told them not to take, only to have them end in big trouble.

An excellent selection for middle-grade summer reading lists.

The audiobook, narrated by Christopher Gebauer, was also very enjoyable.

I received a digital review copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
