The Highwayman's Footsteps,
This review is from: The Highwayman's Footsteps: 1 (Paperback)
This is a book well worth reading if you enjoy 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. Ideally it is suitable for secondary school children although a good Year 5/6 pupil would be able to successfully access it.
The story is about a boy from a wealthy family called William de Lacey who runs away from his family home. While running away he is attacked by a girl highwayman called Bess. He soon realises that she is injured and so he helps her. As the story unfolds, William finds out that his farther is a cruel man who has caused suffering, hardship and death to many people and so with Bess they set out to make amends.
Overall, I found the book was quite an easy read and the shortness of the chapters is a plus point for teenagers.
