The First Two Lives of Lukas-Kasha (Puffin Novel) - Lloyd Alexander As always, master storyteller Lloyd Alexander delivers a story of wit and laughter, quiet reflection and no little sorrow, bold, vibrant characters, and a journey to something greater.

Lukas-Kasha is many things. A lazy street urchin. A bit of a rogue. A thief. But a rather lovable one. And one day a man named Battisto sends him to another world, another life. Here he is the king, the Center of the Universe, and he is afforded a lifestyle and luxuries he could only have dreamed of before. But he sees that things are not all hunk-dory in his kingdom and he tries to change them. But with good intentions and no head for politics, he soon finds himself the victim of an assassination plot. Lukas is soon on the run for his life, and trying to stop an unnecessary war with the neighboring kingdom. Along with him for the craziness is Kasim, an erstwhile versifier and self-proclaimed coward; Haki, an extremely loquacious young boy who sees himself as eternally indebted to Lukas; Locman, the court astrologer who finds a new path; and Nur Jehan, a girl who was called a slave and was always queen.

The ending was slightly different from what I expected, but I know that Lukas finds his companions again somewhere along down the road...
