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
