    " I really enjoyed this book: it's rare to find a chapter book that's suitable for younger (upper second and third grade) readers that has good literary value. This would make an excellent book group book for the library's third grade book group...think I'll pass the title on to Jennifer, in case she needs another book choice for that group... "

    " I'm a big Kate Thompson fan and thoroughly enjoyed this short, large-print illustrated swashbuckling chapter book, but think it's for a much younger audience than its publisher (they say middle grade novel/10 and up/5th grade and up), though older children may enjoy it, too. Great b/w horse illustrations, terrific silver-tongued urchin, and a wonderful, large-hearted black horse owned by the legendary 18th-century highwayman Dick Turpin--or not. You decide. Recommended for all, but especially good boy or horse-lover book. "

    " A clean-as-a-whistle, sharp-as-a-thistle tale that draws on 17th century highwayman legends. A young street orphan is asked by a mysterious stranger to keep an eye on a horse -- which may or may not be Black Bess, owned by the infamous robber Dick Turpin. It's difficult to present ethical dilemmas in children's novels without straying to far into didacticism, but this little number does it with subtlety and style. The protagonist's voice is so richly fleshed out that this book might even make for a good dramatic monologue. "

    " A cute little book about a street urchin who supposedly protects and cares for the horse of a famous highwayman. However, little urchin narrators are hardly trustworthy. A fun little book with great illustrations. 5th grade and up. "
