Wonderful story, well read

Love this story. We know the whole story, and now listen to it piecemeal all the time. Gives the boys (ours are 5 and 7) exposure to language and life in another time, and the adventure doesn't end.

Enjoyable

An exciting tale of the adventures of a young minstrel who becomes separated from his father. Set in the Middle Ages, it gives an interesting & detailed picture of life in that time period. Young & old would enjoy this story. My family did-even the second time around!

Amazing book.

Now I know why it won the Newbury Award. I felt like I was there, where Adam was in the time of the bards.

Beautiful story.

A simple tale with characters drawn in such a way that you genuinely care for them and their well being. Narration was excellent and fit perfectly in tone and mood where necessary.
