Kidnappit

By Robert Louis Stevenson

Synopsis

Translated by Matthew Fitt and James Robertson

Kidnappit is the Scots version of the exciting new graphic novelisation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped, a dramatic and epic adventure story about a seventeen-year-old desperate to secure his inheritance, culminating in a chase from the islands in the west of Scotland to Edinburgh. Alan Grant and Cam Kennedy's graphic novel in English has been a big success and, to add to the mix, Matthew Fitt and James Robertson have translated Alan Grant's take on Stevenson's classic into Scots. Kidnappit, the Scots version, will cast a new light on the telling of this famous tale and is sure to capture the imaginations of readers young and old. Following on from the runaway success of Itchy Coo's other translations, The Eejits and Geordie's Mingin Medicine, both by Roald Dahl, Kidnappit is another high-quality and entertaining experience for the ever-growing readership who enjoy reading the world's literary classics in Scots.
