Highwaymen, murder and mystery. Have you read Smith?

I've just re-read this gripping book. It is truly a modern classic. I'd recommend it for readers 10+ who are keen to have their vocabulary stretched. Smith is an Artful Dodger who survives on instinct and speed. The story has mystery, murder and highwaymen. Great for boys and girls who want an exciting story. This is a perfect preparation for the more difficult vocabulary of Dickens and other classics.
