adapted by Anne Coulter Martens

Two buddies wanting a get-rich-quick scheme decide to kidnap "Red," young nephew of a wealthy banker, for ransom. However, Red drives the kidnappers crazy with his high energy and tomfoolery that his kidnappers can't wait to get rid of him...only to find the tables have turned, and they may have to pay a pretty sum to return the little terror! Packed with hilarity and wit, The Ransom of Red Chief is brought to you with a story analysis concerning family and responsibility.
