Synopsis

Avoid Working in the Forbidden City! by Jacqueline Morley

You are a hard-working student in 18th-century China, aiming for a glittering career as a court official. You will have to study hard, and must always remember your place. Will the rewards of the job be worth the effort? The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like working in the Forbidden City. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
