The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Bisto Irish Children's Book Award. With the thundering of hooves never far away, Kate Thompson weaves an attractive yarn as told by a cheeky but brave street boy whose fortunes change after he’s left holding the horse of the legendary Dick Turpin, the greatest highwayman of them all. The glamour and danger of a highwayman’s life are both laid bare in this brief and entertaining story.
Highway Robbery by Kate Thompson
'Hold the mare for me, lad. And when I come back I'll give you a golden guinea.' But who is the rider, and why is there so much interest in his big black horse? And will the boy ever see the money he has been promised? There's highway robbery in the air, but it isn't always entirely clear just who is trying to rob who.
