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* Infused with humor, high spirits, and compassion. School Library Journal, starred review"
