Rollercoasters are popular with boys, girls and mixed-ability classes. Evoking a mesmerising picture of the Jacobite Rebellion, orphaned Robbie flees from his heartless uncle to join Bonnie Prince Charlie's uprising against the English. On the run from the redcoats, Robbie meets Charlie,
possibly the last wild wolf cub left in Scotland, and the pair form an extraordinary bond. An appealing educational edition of Morpurgo's mesmerising novel.
