Read by Simon Callow, here is the world's first 'pigaresque novel'.
After escaping the butcher's knife with the help of his steadfast companion, Sam, Toby soon finds himself under the order of the volatile impresario Silas Bisset and his travelling menagerie of performing monkeys, horses, turkeys, and canaries. Before too long, he is packing out theatres and concert halls, impressing the crowds with his ability to count, spell, and even read the minds of ladies. But celebrity comes at a cost, as Toby soon finds out.
