    'Kidnapped' was one of the most readable and exciting adventure novels growing up. The scene where Uncle Ebenezer dupes David into going up a tower with unfinished stairs on a stormy night was a great thrill, as were the subsequent adventures on the seas and in the Highlands. David Balfour and Alan Breck Stewart are well constructed characters and their camaraderie is quite uplifting. This is a mediocre adaptation even though it uses some original Lowland Scots dialect from the novel. And in ter 'Kidnapped' was one of the most readable and exciting adventure novels growing up.

And in terms of illustrations it is actually below par, especially compared to some of the other graphic novels in the series.

    I don't know if it's my bad memories from picking this out of a Scholastic book list at far too young an age to enjoy it, but this graphic novel version seems much more exciting than I remember the original being. But then again, that might be because most of my memories are of struggling through the complicated English of the era and all the nautical terminology. Regardless, this was a more ripping yarn for being condensed and (mostly) translated into modern English.

(As noted in the ebook edition, the illustrator makes frequent use of small side-panels for short definitions in order to incorporate the language of the original into the graphic novel without overdoing it.)
