Read full description of the books:Citizen of the Galaxy takes place far in the future, when the human race has spread out to colonize other planets. In a slave market in the capital of Jubbul and of the Nine Worlds, an auctioneer announces, "Lot ninety-seven. A boy." Slavery is commonplace in Jubbul, and the sight of a ragged, starving boy, Thorby, on the auction block is not unusual. What does puzzle bystanders and Thorny himself is his purchase by crippled Baslim, the beggar who sits every day in a corner of the marketplace.
Thorby soon discovers that Baslim is no ordinary beggar. Master of languages and superb teacher, Beslim leads a mysterious undercover life that brings Thorby eventually to his own adventure on the Free Trading starship Sisu and finally to the truth about Baslim's identity and his own.
