Detailed Summary

As stated this young man accidently becomes king when he catches a ball like object flying at him out of a crowd in the street that turns out to be the last king. Thus he becomes the new king for the next four years, which he spends bringing in theives, acrobats, magicians and the like to learn their trade well enough to avoid a similar fate. He befriends an old man, a magician I believe, who helps him train and ultimately avoid his execution. The two friends then travel the country together, which I don't remember much of, but I remember being totally entranced by the entire book.
