The boy grows to love the castle and the surrounding countryside and spends his days exploring its many secrets. One day, he discovers a secret passage that leads to a hidden chamber. In the chamber, he finds a set of armor and a shield that are unlike any he has ever seen. He is sure that they must be the property of his uncle, but he is not allowed to touch them. The boy decides to take the armor and shield home with him and keep them hidden away until he can figure out a way to get them to his uncle.; 8vo; 241 pages; Price? ? ?
