First published in Dutch as: De brief voor de koning, c1960. English language translation first published by Pushkin Children's Books in 2013.
When sixteen-year-old Tiuri answers a desperate call for help, he finds himself on a perilous mission that could cost him his life. He must deliver a secret letter to the King who lives across the Great Mountains - a letter upon which the future of the entire realm depends. It means abandoning his home, breaking all the rules and leaving everything behind - even the knighthood that he has dreamed of for so long.
Translated from the Dutch.
