Item description for The Chimney Sweep's Ransom (Trailblazer Books) by Neta Jackson Dave Jackson...

Thrilling adventure stories introducing young readers (ages 8-12) to Christian heroes of the past.

Ned Carter, an eighteenth-century boy of thirteen, has been working in the dangerous coal mines in northern England since he was five. He desperately wants to save his little brother Pip from the same fate. Like so many poor English families of the day, even the young children of the Carter family must earn money to pay the bills. Now Pip is turning five and Ned must find a way to prevent his parents from sending Pip into the coal mines.

But when Ned has an accident, Pip's fate seems sealed without Ned's income, his father is sure to act. But instead of the mines, little Pip is "sold" to be trained as a chimney sweep. Before Ned can intervene, Pip has vanished forever!

Despite his injury, Ned determines he must find Pip and try to buy him back. But where has Pip been taken and how can Ned ever earn the ransom money without his father knowing it? What might the preacher, John Wesley, do on Pip's behalf?

Reviews - What do customers think about The Chimney Sweep's Ransom (Trailblazer Books)?

One of the BEST Trailblazer books...  May 19, 2008
This book has a wonderful and original story. I thoroughly enjoyed it & I would happily read the book again!

Ned Carter, a 13 year old boy, is where the story centers. He lives in England of the 1700s. His family is barely hanging onto life and then, when Ned gets injured, he can't work, which puts a damper on the family's income. To make up for the money loss, Ned's little brother is sent away as a chimney sweep. Ned tries his hardest, but it seems as though there is no loophole to get his brother back--That is until that traveling preacher, John Wesley, comes upon the family in their time of need and helps them the best he can. Will it be enough though?
Ned is taking on a life-changing experience....
Best book in the world  Apr 12, 2002
Nobody in my classroom wanted to read this book because it's a learning book. But when I saw it and picked it up, I knew it was my soulmate. This book has taught me a lot about loving God, being kind to others, and especially loving and respecting your family. And that's why I think other children should read this book. And I hope that they'll enjoy it as much as I did. Thank you.
