Praise

“Motion, poet laureate of the U.K. from 1999 to 2009, provides a strong dose of swashbuckling, adventure-driven historical fiction… [A] good, page-turning yarn.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“Beautifully written—Motion is the former poet laureate of the UK—The New World is a thoughtful story of adventure underlay by guilt and the uncertainties of love.”
Booklist
 
“Thrilling… You don’t have to have read Treasure Island or Silver to delight in this engaging tale, but fans of the earlier works will be especially pleased at the return of these two likable young adventurers.”
Library Journal

“Full of big themes such as courage, greed, loyalty and obsession, The New World is still an adventure story first and foremost. . . . An entertaining homage that is deeply felt and sincere.” The Guardian (UK)

“Riveting…I love The New World… I look forward, hopefully, to more.”–John Sutherland, The Times

“Motion paints an alluring portrait of a land that is in turns bountiful and beautiful, barren and savage.”—Independent
 
“[The New World] leaves one keen for more, and soon.”—The Herald

“It’s written with such gusto and passion that it’s impossible not to enjoy it.”–Irish Independent

“Motion’s narrative is both more lyrical and more gruesome than Robert Louis Stevenson’s.” —Mail on Sunday


Praise for Andrew Motion’s 
Silver: 

“With Silver, Andrew Motion [points] the way to literary treasure.” —New York Times Book Review 

“Crammed with incident, intrigue, and peril. . . . One gets easily swept up by the suspenseful story Silver tells, and the excitement, dread, and courage of its young narrator and his companions.” —Seattle Times

“Deft, wildly imaginative . . . Every chapter crackles with energy and action . . . A page-turner that thoughtfully questions its own world–and makes you long for a sequel to the sequel.” –Oprah.com 

“A rollicking adventure . . . Can’t miss.” —Library Journal
