Newbery Award winning story of "adventure, suspense, humor, and lively characters." (The New York Times)


Prince Brat and his whipping boy inadvertently trade places after becoming involved with dangerous outlaws. The two boys have nothing in common and even less reason to like each other. But when they find themselves taken hostage after running away, they are left with no choice but to trust each other.
