Title: The Highwayman
Author: Alfred Noyes
Illustrator: Charles Keeping
Winning Year: 1981

We studied the Highwayman in class earlier this term. The black and white illustrations add to the ghostly atmosphere and help the reader to understand the old text. There are some amazing animations of the story on Youtube which made some of us cry!
