Prisoners at the Kitchen Table: Houghton Mifflin, 1979; Scholastic (as Run for Your Life)
"Prisoners at the Kitchen Table is a first-rate adventure story."
--The New York Times Book Review (October 28, 1979)
"The kidnapping of two children unfolds from the point of view of Josh, a quiet, cautious child who admires the gutsy, daredevil nature of his friend Polly. In the course of the abduction, their roles are reversed: Polly becomes frightened and helpless while Josh, although just as frightened, thinks clearly and carefully and eventually engineers their escape. ... The tension level holds throughout, and the resolution is satisfying."
--American Library Association's Booklist (December 15, 1979)
