Robby and Eggy are the characters in my historical fiction novel for (mainly) boys, ages 9-12. They live in medieval times of the 1220’s. Robby, a farmer’s son, want to learn to read, hoping it will raise his status. His best friend, Eggy, is low born and thinks it’s a ridiculous idea. Both boys have lots of adventures together, some of which Robby’s parents frown upon, and many of which they are not aware. Next time, I’ll tell you about one in particular that was probably Robby’s favorite.
