Winner of the American Book Award (now known as the National Book Award)

An ALA Best of the Best Books for Young Adults

A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year

When Theo agrees to print a traveling showman's pamphlet, he only thinks of the money it will bring in. Instead, it sets off a chain reaction that results in the smashing of the press and the murder of his master. Caught on the wrong side of the law, Theo must flee the city. Soon, he has teamed up with the traveling showman Count Las Bombas (who is actually a con artist) and his servant. The trio is soon joined by Mickle, a clever, strong-willed girl with a mysterious past. Performing feats that astound and amaze, the motley crew falls into a trap set by Chief Minister Cabbarus, who is determined to wrest power from the grief-stricken king. Now they must not only save themselves-they must save the kingdom...

This is the first volume in Lloyd Alexander's classic Westmark trilogy.

This novel combines fast paced adventure with political intrigue through the eyes of Theo, a printer's devil. After getting in trouble by printing the wrong pamphlet at the wrong time, Theo falls in with a con artist's gang. At the same time, the kingdom of Westmark is falling apart because the king can't stop mourning the loss of his only child. Theo''s journey falls in with these other events, and Lloyd Alexander brings the whole story together in an interesting and satisfying way.
