What a cool book. The illustrations are great and the story captivating. I read it to my class during a topic on Highwaymen. They would not let me stop until it was finished. You immediately build up an affection for the little character telling the story and you can almost hear his voice from the beautiful way it is written.

I borrowed this book, and I loved the velvety cover that my hardback copy had. It's written in such an adorable way, as if the main character is talking directly to you. I was drawn in straight away, and I didn't want to put this excellent book down!

Format: Hardcover
I was completely enraptured with this book from the moment I picked it up. The hardback is beautifully produced with a black velvet cover: it felt like a highway man's pouch of gold before I even opened it, and from the absolute first I was hooked.
The time that elapses during the whole book is only about twenty-four hours whilst a small street urchin holds Black Bess for Dick Turpin. The strength of the tale is in the characters, particularly that of the narrator, the young lad, who tells his tale in a polite conversational way - though not the twentieth century chatty style because this is of course set in the eighteenth century when you address men taller and grander than you as `Sir'. It's a great story and I was surprised and delighted by an unexpected twist at the very end. A short read, this is perfect to read aloud - but make sure your listeners are sitting close because on almost every double page there are fantastic black ink illustrations by Jonny Duddle who captures the beauty of the big black horse remarkably well. His slightly quirky big-eyed children, crooks and highway men are equally appealing and put me in mind of a cross between those of Chris Mould and Chris Riddell.
This book is an absolute masterpiece and I can't recommend it hightly enough for any child from about age 6.

Format: Hardcover
As the old saying goes "A story never loses anything in the telling" and that's the premise of this tale by Kate Thompson, aimed at the seven year old market.

It's witty, the protagonist a cunning as well as witty narrator and above all else the story wends it's way in such a wonderful pace that it wouldn't have been out of place at the Santon Bridges yearly competition (held at the Bridge Inn.)

Finally, add to the mix the enchanting artwork of Jonny Duddle and it's a story that's fanciful play on words will entertain the reader for a long time. I definitely look forward to more of Kate's work.
