Synopsis

Samurai by Louie Stowell

This is a new title in Young Reading Series Three , which is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. The book tells the story of the Samurai, the great warriors of Japan, and how they shaped the country's history. It reveals the truth behind Samurai training, culture and society, as well as thrilling details of Samurai battles, warlords and leaders, before their decline in the early 19th Century and how their spirit endured in the kamikaze warriors of World War Two. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.

About the Author

Louie Stowell

Louie Stowell writes books about all kinds of things for Usborne, from fantastical stories about talking trees and enchanted castles to books about astronomy and space.

She lives – and always has lived – in London and likes to draw cartoons in her spare time. She believes that television doesn’t actually rot your brain, just bad television, and that the next Doctor Who should be a woman. She likes reading comics and thinks Asterix has the best puns of any book ever (especially the two Roman soldiers called “Sendervictorius and Appianglorius”).
