Sebastian Darke: Prince of Fools by Philip Caveney

Hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps as a jester, Sebastian Darke travels to the kingdom of Keladon to entertain the court of King Septimus.  His buffalo Max, who pulls the caravan wagon, cautions Sebastian that his jokes and stories need a lot of practice. While crossing the vast plains, Sebastian and Max meet Captain Cornelius Drummel, an experienced soldier and fierce warrior, who happens to be extremely short. After fighting off a group of brigands who are attacking a line of supply wagons, they learn the only survivor is Princess Kerin, niece of King Septimus. They all travel together to Keladon, where Sebastian and Cornelius seek employment after delivering Princess Kerin safely to her uncle. As they settle in to their new jobs, they learn there are many secrets and plots in Keladon, which will put them in danger.

I liked the characters, humor and action in this book, and was happy to find out the author has written a sequel which continues the adventures of Sebastian, Max and Cornelius.
