A lively and engaging Starters title for beginner readers illustrated by acclaimed picture book artist Polly Dunbar, with a friendly text and stylish two-colour illustrations.

Hal the Highwayman is part of Walker Starters, the wonderfully fun and friendly series for beginner readers. Hal wants to be a fearsome highwayman - but he's very clumsy and isn't at all scary. So he signs up for Dick Turpin's School for Highwayman. Lessons start at once! This is a charming and witty story told through a range of writing styles, including hand-lettered speech bubbles, postcards and posters. The illustrations, which appear on every page, are lively and stylish, and play an active part in helping children understand the text.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If only more first reading books were written and illustrated with the dash and panache of this highly entertaining tale...Young readers will love the jokes, the lists, the school report, the maps, Dunbar's exuberant, scribbly pencil and wash illustrations... * Books For Keeps, EDITOR'S CHOICE *
Any child who doesn't get the jokes in Hal The Highwayman should be referred to the Crack-a-Joke Co-ordinator for a sense of humour screening test. * TES Teacher *
