Synopsis

Mimus by Lilli Thal

A gripping medieval adventure story, bristling with sparkling wit. It was shortlisted for the prestigious German Youth Literature Prize. Two mighty kingdoms have been engaged in endless, merciless war, but change appears imminent. King Philip is meeting his archenemy, King Theodo, to sign a peace treaty. But King Philip and his men are tricked and consigned to the squalid dungeons of King Theodo's castle. Soon, 12-year-old Prince Florin is lured to the castle, where the same horror awaits him. On a whim, King Theodo decides to make the crown prince his second fool, trained by Mimus, an enigmatic, occasionally spiteful, and unpredictable court jester. This is a brilliant novel that will take readers in its grip and hold them until the last page is turned.
