Reviews

Gr 7 Up-Fifteen-year-old Davie Balfours leaves his lowland Scotland home to travel to the Shaws estate to claim his inheritance after his father's deathbed confession reveals Davie to be the rightful heir. His uncle, who has no intention of giving up his home, arranges for Davie to be kidnapped by a sea captain and to be sold into slavery. While on board, Davie meets exiled Highland rebel Breck, and soon Davie is in for the adventure of a lifetime. A superb cast is very engaging, particularly James Anthony Pearson as Davie and Iain Glen as Breck, the charming knave with a heart of gold. The scenery is breathtaking and haunting; the highlands of Scotland have as profound a presence on the screen as the actors. Although this version is not faithful to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic coming-of-age novel, it is grand entertainment and would make a fine addition to school and public library collections.-Jane Halsall, McHenry Public Library, IL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
