A completely engrossing children's tale concerning a young squire who unexpectedly goes on a quest to deliver a letter to a rival king in an unknown kingdom. This book was published in the 60s but feels like a classic immediately. It stands up to the Hobbit or Earthsea in its sense of fantastic escapism. Chivalrous in its morality, it feels medieval but modern in its telling.
