Hi, I'm Barnabus. Well, Barnabus Mudpatch, actually. Yes, I'm one of the Mudpatches of Waxminster, the legendary Street Knights who look after the abandoned children and bring them up as part of our huge extended family. I'm an orphan myself. I was found in a shop doorway when I was a tiny baby.
No-one knows who my
mother was, or where she
came from. All I have to remind
me of her is the medallion I
was wearing when they found
me, and I've never taken it off
since. Well, only to change the
leather cord, which wears out
every few years, but that's all.
I had an amazing adventure
with a suit of armour ...... well, you've
probably heard all about that.
In the next few pages you can
find out about the other people
in my story. They're all really
interesting people, and
I learned such a lot from them!
Well, don't just sit there, start reading!
