How to keep his human out of trouble is the job of Wag, the old dog who tells this delightfully quirky story. His human is Tom, a boy who has been apprenticed to the Court’s minstrel. And that would all be fine except for one thing: Tom can’t sing… How Wag saves Tom from some spectacular disasters is a riotously good read.
Wag and the King, the new book in Joan Lennon’s funny and exciting Tales from the Keep series, is a tale told by a dog. An old dog, but a dog at the court of a king.
The dog’s master is an apprentice minstrel. That’s a nice job to have as long as you can sing in tune, and be nice about people.
Unfortunately, this boy finds not telling the truth really hard, and it ends up getting him, his boss, and even his dog into real trouble.
But they get a second chance when king and country are threatened by an unscrupulous princess!
