Fantastic story of a boy & his adventures set in the Middle Ages. My girls loved it as a read-aloud, & I'm sure boys would like it even better. It's one of my family's all time favorite read-aloud books!

From the back cover:
"I want to go with you," Adam tells his father. But the roads of early England were home to bands of thieves and robber knights - not just to minstrels like Adam and his father.
Before their journey has harldy begun, Adam's beloved dog, Nick, is stolen and his father disappears. Adam is 11 years old, but he travels the road alone, searching the fairs and market towns for his father and his dog.
