The Lovereading4Kids comment
Action packed and compelling, Kidnapped is a classic adventure story involving danger and revealing great courage. David Balfour has to track down his uncle to seek his inheritance. But his uncle is not all that he seems. David is kidnapped and put aboard a ship to lead him to slavery. How he is helped to escape and find safety by Alan Breck, the daring young Jacobite rebel, and how the two of them survive and make good in the rough Scottish countryside is told in dramatic and thrilling detail.
This edition comes with a brilliant introduction by Alexander McCall Smith who tells us how he came to love this story and why it remains such a thrilling and exciting adventure in his mind. There's also lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who plus many activities beyond the book.
