The Brave Adventures of Lapitch (Croatian: Čudnovate zgode šegrta Hlapića), also known as The Marvellous Adventures of Hlapić the Apprentice, is a 1913 novel by Croatian children's author Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić.

In the story, a poor young orphan called Lapitch works as the apprentice for the Scowlers—a mean-mannered shoemaker, and his kind-hearted wife. After Master Scowler blames him for the wrong size of a customer's shoes, Lapitch leaves a note and runs away from home. Later joined by Bundaš, the Scowlers' dog, he sets off on a seven-day adventure, during which he meets Gita, a circus performer, and encounters a local thief known as the Black Man.

Lapitch has been translated into all of Europe's major languages, as well as in Esperanto, Japanese, Vietnamese, Persian and Bengali among others.[1]

In 1997, the Croatia Film company released an animated feature adaptation, Lapitch the Little Shoemaker.
