'In some ways.' Tom thought to himself as he lay bound and gagged in the back of an old wagon that stank of rotting fish, with a pile of turnips dumped on top of him, 'things have improved.'
Tom's adventures continue as he finds himself employed as a squire to Henry, Duke of Lancaster. His quest to become a knight continues, with his dream of winning tournaments and travelling distant lands, but first he must escape the clutches of a kidnapper, a cannibal, many guards and even a band of bandits. Oh, and he also falls off a palace wall, down a well and in love (oops!) and makes a total mess of the Pope's dinner!
A rip-roaring adventure full of fun and humour, pleny of peril and even some history.
