Outlaw review by a 10 year old

I loved the plot of the story as it was more specific than the legend I heard. However I do think that the voice acting could be improved.
I'd recommend it to ages seven and up as it is really interesting but it can be rather dark at times. One last thing- Michael Morpurgo is an excellent author and I would recommend his books to anyone

The author could have fleshed out the characters more, and he does more telling than showing, but Outlaw is a moving story, and one that will stay with the reader.
