Synopsis

Avoid Being a Samurai! by Fiona MacDonald

Strap on your elaborate armour and fearsome face mask, but be prepared for years of training! It takes self-discipline and wits to become a true Samurai. 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 training to be a Samurai in 17th century Japan. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
