About the Novel: A samurai fights for honor and survival in a real-life Game of Thrones.
Stirring narrative nonfiction recounts the rise of Minamoto Yoshitsune from seemingly doomed infant to immortal warrior-hero (and one of the most famous samurai in Japanese history). Acclaimed author Pamela S. Turner delivers all the drama, romance, and tragedy of the original story--with delightfully dry wit and a healthy dose of modern perspective. Gorgeous ink paintings by celebrated graphic-novelist Gareth Hinds complete this irresistible package.
About the Resource: The pack has been designed to cover five weeks, with assigned pages for reading, comprehension tasks and quotation and structure analysis.
A digital copy of the file on Google Slides is available with download for children to edit online instead of printing the pack.
