At first I couldn't understand the story,but it got clear little by little.In the middle part of the story you will find the theme of this story.It a little bit difficult for me to understand the whole of this story, but it's really exciting and thrilling.Especially the last scene is amazing.I thought I wanna see this story in the movie.It's gonna be a good thing.

This story is always thrilling when I read.
Doyle is very horrible man, I think.
This story is difficult for me , so I couldn't understand all of story, but I think at the last Tug is positive. ( )

Tug,who is a boy in London,was kidnaped.Criminals is a man and a woman and they treated Tug like a child.A girl Sinny,who lives near the cottage,noticed a mystery...
This book made me feel uneasy and a thrill/I was interested in sad past of criminals.On the whole,it create an dark atomosphere. ( )

Tag is usual boy who likes running.
But one day he was involved in big trouble.
The strange man and woman ordered him to call them "Pa" and "Ma".
What is their purpose do you think?

This story makes me feel uneasy.
Because, at first, I can't understand what they want to do.
After reading I feel kidnap is surely bad, but the woman has little maternal instinct. ( )
