This was actually in lollie-mavette's goodie bag at Easter - oops a tardy journal! Sorry futurecat, but she forgot to make an entry!

This was buried during our move and is being released in a tidy up to another bookcrosser.

Looked interesting - no one has made a comment on the book so far, so hope that I can.

Interesting children's book set in feudal Japan's puppet theatre. It gives a good insight into the harsh conditions of the working lives of children in this feudal society, the beauty of the puppet theatre, and there is also a bit of a mystery as well.

Blurb from back of the book:
"Who is the man called Saburo, the mysterious bandit who robs the rich and helps the poor? And what is his connection with Yoshida, the harsh and ill-tempered master in feudal Japan's most famous pupper theatre? Young Jiro, an apprecntice to Yoshida, is determined to find out, even at risk of his own life.

Meanwhile, Jiro devotes himself to learning puppetry. Kinshi, the puppet master's son, tutors him. When his sheltered life at the theatre is shattered by mobs of hungry, rioting peasants, Jiro becomes aware of responsibilities greater than his craft. As he schemes to help his friend Kinshi and to find his own parents, Jiro stumbles onto a dangerous and powerful secret...."

I'll pass this onto a young friend who is an avid reader.
