From the Newbery Medal-winning author of The High King, comes the story of Sebastian, a boy never far from adventure—or trouble!

When fourth fiddler Sebastian loses his place in the Baron’s orchestra, he takes to the highway—and soon finds himself dealing with disaster after disaster. In trying to rescue a stray cat, he loses his violin; in trying to help a skinny boy who turns out to be a princess, he falls into the clutches of a bear; and when he tries to join a theater troupe as an actor, he finds himself cast as a clown.

But Sebastian’s a fleet-footed optimist, and he’ll always find a way to outrace trouble, outwit it, or enchant it—and he’ll keep everyone around him laughing.

Winner of the 1971 National Book Award
