The Famous Stanley Kidnapping Case
But such bragging does not go unnoticed. One terrible night, the children are kidnapped. David tries to make friends with the kidnappers to protect his family. But that’s hard to do when Janie lectures them on how to write a ransom note and Esther complains about the terrible food. Can David and Amanda use their siblings’ hijinks to outsmart the kidnappers?
This classic novel by Zilpha Keatley Snyder is by turns exciting, hilarious, and scary as it follows the plight of these rambunctious siblings.
