Librarian's Review

Eleven year old Adam, must keep his best friend, Nick the spaniel, hidden from his school masters at St. Alban’s Abbey.  But when his father, Roger the Minstrel, invites Adam to join his travels, Adam jumps at the chance and they set off astride Bayard, his father’s dappled gray (retired) war horse.  A series of mishaps separates Adam first from Bayard, and then from Nick and his father.  Read this wonderful novel to find out how Adam sets off on a journey to find and reunite them all.
