"Devastatingly brilliant and beautiful...Ursu has sculpted a rich and poignant adventure that brings readers deep into the mysterious, magical, and sometimes frightening forests of childhood and change. Breadcrumbs is one of those rare novels that turned me on my head then sat on my heart and refused to budge."--Ingrid Law, Newbery Honor-winning author of Savvy "This is a lyrical book, a lovely book, and a smart book; it dares us to see stories as spreading more widely, and running more deeply, than we had imagined."--Gary Schmidt, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Wednesday Wars 2011 NPR Backseat Book Club--Featured Selection "Wonderfully distinct, delightfully told and destined for a long life on the shelf."--The Wall Street Journal The evocative magical landscape, superbly developed characters (particularly dreamy, self-doubting, determined Hazel and lost Jack), and the piercing sadness of a faltering childhood friendship give this delicately written fantasy wide and lingering appeal.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) The creepy fantasyland that Hazel traverses uses bits from other Andersen tales to create a story that...is beautifully written and wholly original. It's certainly the only children's fantasy around where Minnesota Twins All-Star catcher Joe Mauer figures into the plot.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Like a fairy-tale heroine, Hazel traverses the woods without a breadcrumb trail to save a boy who may not want to be saved in this multi-layered, artfully crafted, transforming testament to the power of friendship.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Gr 5-8-When Hazel's best friend suddenly stops talking to her, she's devastated. Nonetheless, after Jack is taken by a witch into the woods, she plunges into an icy world filled with people, creatures, and elements that echo the books she loves to rescue him. Imaginative and brave, Hazel is a memorable and feisty heroine. (Nov.) (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
