Adam is a young minstrel, son of a minstrel, in medieval England. He loves his father, Roger, his dog, Nick, and being a minstrel. We meet the characters and go along with them for a good third of the book before Adam becomes separated both from his dog and his dad. Nick is stolen, and in the chase to catch the dog-napper, he loses his father as well. The rest of the book is Adam's quest to find at least one, but preferably both members of his family. Each chapter is its own small adventure, and we definitely are given a view of the middle ages through heavily rose-tinted glasses.

I had mixed feelings about this one. Definitely enjoyed it more than most Newbery winners as old as this (1942 copyright), so it holds up better than some. Adam was a likable protagonist too. But the tale didn't seem have much of a point beyond just following Adam around England hunting for his father and dog. He didn't really learn any lessons, or become a better person. So, while an entertaining enough book, it felt sort of empty at the end. Enjoyable, but probably forgettable. ( )

Adam is an eleven year old son of a minstrel, and training to follow in his father's footsteps. While out on the road Adam's dog is stolen, and then he and his father become separated. Alone in thirteenth century England Adam uses his wits and talents to not only survive, but to locate both his father and his dog.

This book deserves its Newbery Metal, as an extremely well-written, believable, and exciting story for all ages. ( )

A pleasant jaunt through medevil England with a young minstrel and his beloved dog, Nick. Children may have enjoyed learning about this time and imagining what it might have been like for a boy walking all over England, playing for his food and bed. Not sure though if it would be enjoyed today. ( )

Epigraph (Motto/Zitat)
Die Informationen stammen von der englischen "Wissenswertes"-Seite. Ändern, um den Eintrag der eigenen Sprache anzupassen.
The road runs straight up hill and down,
Beyond the bridge and mill wheel brown,
Through field and forest, dale and town-
But here stay I.
Wayfarers pass with never a care,
They walk or ride, or stand and stare,
Meeting, no doubt, adventurers rare-
They pass me by.
Under the sky the birds fly free,
squirrels and foxes have their glee,
Free as air is the humble bee-
I can but sigh.
Matins to nones the bell does Dong,
From nones again to evensong,
Latin and prayers the whole day long-
I think I'll die.
I want to sing and jump and run,
Mile on mile in the wind and sun,
Sleep somewhere else when day is done-
But here I lie.
The cuckoo now has changed his tune,
Each passing day leaves less of June,
Roger, sure, will be coming soon-
Away we'll fly!

After a May as gray and cold as December, June cam in, that year of 1294, sunny and warm and full of birds and blossoms and all the other happy things the songs praise May for.
