Publisher's Summary

The most celebrated, best-selling classic children's novel from Holland, now in English for the first time after more than 50 years of international success....
It is the dead of night. Sixteen-year-old Tiuri must spend hours locked in a chapel in silent contemplation if he is to be knighted the next day. But as he waits by the light of a flickering candle, he hears a knock at the door and a voice desperately asking for help.
A secret letter must be delivered to King Unauwen across the Great Mountains - a letter upon which the fate of the entire kingdom depends. Tiuri has a vital role to play, one that might cost him his knighthood. Tiuri's journey will take him through dark, menacing forests, across treacherous rivers, to sinister castles and strange cities. He will encounter evil enemies who would kill to get the letter but also the best of friends in the most unexpected places.
He must trust no one. He must keep his true identity secret. Above all, he must never reveal what is in the letter....
The Letter for the King is the thrilling story of one boy's battle against evil, set in an enchanted world of chivalry, courage, and true friendship.

A Pleasing Plod

Full of cheerful innocence, chivalry and gallantry; wonderfully read and utterly charming. If anything, I now wish that I lived in Turi's world, with the kings of old.

Looking forward to the sequel!
