A great book!

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-12-02) Excellent Permalink

A young beggar boy is faced with the challenge of helping a robber or helping the king. The boy eventually learns to stand up for himself. I thought it was a great book and that the characters were really good. Student Review.
