Kidnapped Prince children's book

The Kidnapped Prince: The Life of Olaudah Equiano


Adapted by Ann Cameron

Recommended ages: 9 and up

This is the true biography of Olaudah Equiano, an African prince who was kidnapped at age 11 and sold into slavery in England, the U.S., and the West Indies, until he was able to buy his freedom more than a decade later. His best-selling autobiography was first published in 1789 and has been shortened and modernized in Cameron's version, which remains true to the gripping original script.
