Synopsis

The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes

Alfred Noyes's famous poem still has the power to thrill us as we read the story of the highwayman and his doomed love for Bess, the landlord's black-eyed daughter. Charles Keeping's astonishing pictures broke the boundaries of picture book illustration when it was first published and won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1982.

Reviews

Keeping's illustrations are amongst the most powerful images ever to have appeared in children's literature. Books for Keeps The striking quality of these classic poems is such that they still offer excitement and intensity for today's young readers with Keeping's unique interpretation providing a marvellous way into the poetry. Dave Chant, Carousel
