Product Description:

This is another well-written novel from author Katherine Paterson. Set in feudal Japan, times are rough, especially for peasants who can't afford to buy food. Afraid of being a burden, young Jiro, the son of a puppet-maker, leaves home and becomes an apprentice at the nearby puppet theater. What is the connection between Yoshida, master of the puppet theater; Saburo, a Robin Hood-like figure who steals rice from the rich to give to the poor; and Jiro's own father? ~ Anh
