It's exciting, it teaches about a period of history in Japan; it's got funny bits; it teaches about the theater, especially Japanese puppets; it models values of loyalty, honor, courage.

It should be in every fifth-grade classroom, and everybody who reads juvenile HF should read it, and I don't see how kids haven't marked it as a favorite timeless classic. Novel yang berkisah tentang seorang bocah di Osaka di sekitar tahun an, saat masyarakat Jepang umumnya kekurangan pangan sementara para pedagang, samurai, dan Daimyo menyibukkan diri dengan perang yang berkelanjutan.
Si Bocah, Jiro, meninggalkan rumah orang tuanya dan memilih untuk mengabdi pada sebuah teater boneka yang dipimpin oleh Yoshida. Di tempat itu ia berteman baik dengan Yoshida Kinshi, putra si ketua, yang tidak terlalu berbakat untuk menjadi dalang boneka.
Di saat yang sama, seor Novel yang berkisah tentang seorang bocah di Osaka di sekitar tahun an, saat masyarakat Jepang umumnya kekurangan pangan sementara para pedagang, samurai, dan Daimyo menyibukkan diri dengan perang yang berkelanjutan. Di saat yang sama, seorang pencuri budiman seringkali merampok dari para saudagar dan pejabat dan kemudian membagi-bagikan beras kepada orang miskin. Walaupun demikian, hadiah uang untuk informasi tentang Saburo si pencuri yang ditawarkan Daimyo cukup menggiurkan siapapun untuk mengkhianatinya, termasuk pula Jiro, yang mendapati ibunya hampir mati kelaparan sementara ayahnya dikhawatirkan telah meninggal terkana radang paru-paru.
Karena saya kurang mengenal karya-karya sebelumnya, yang pertama menarik perhatian saya pada buku ini sebenarnya adalah warna covernya yang biru, benar-benar birunya biru - solid cobalt blue- ditambah gambar boneka Jepang yang khas. Tapi setelah diperhatikan, ternyata ada gambar latar belakang teater yang menggambarkan rumah-rumah yang terbakar dan yang out of place foto seorang bocah yang sedang berjalan.
Sebenarnya -IMHO- tanpa foto bocah itu, rasanya ilustrasi cover-nya malah jadi lebih pas lo:p. While this was an interesting look at life in feudal Japan, it was too ambitious an undertaking for such a small book.
There weren't enough pages to focus on all of the whys and wherefores so it was sometimes confusing - why did Jiro's father leave his mother? Paterson did a lot of research to write this book and she really wanted the reader to know that but it came off like an outsider writing about something that wasn't really hers While this was an interesting look at life in feudal Japan, it was too ambitious an undertaking for such a small book.
Paterson did a lot of research to write this book and she really wanted the reader to know that but it came off like an outsider writing about something that wasn't really hers to write about; it often felt forced and awkward. I never felt drawn into the story. It galloped at full speed in the last few pages to clear up so many loose ends and Paterson's efforts to create an unnecessary element of suspense just served to confuse me even more - why did Osaka corner Jiro in the attic in such menacing fashion when he really had no intention of harming him and why on earth did Kinshi's hand get cut off?
It may have been a better book if it had been about just the puppet theater culture or just the Sabura legend but everything together just created a mash-up that I couldn't quite sink my teeth into. The Master Puppeteer is of course another favorite. It is the story of Sabura, a Japanese Robin Hood who steals from the rich to help the very poor in the Japanese feudal system.
As the hungry crowd mobs and the authorities furiously search for the true identity of Sabura, Jiro is caught in the middle between Yoshida his master and his family. Fantastic suspen The Master Puppeteer is of course another favorite. Fantastic suspense combined with historical fiction. There are a lot of underdog stories about kids trying to make in the big leagues of whatever their passion is; in this case Kabuki theater.
The story riddled with enigmatic and super well developed characters starts as a hungry boy is apprenticed into a theater, learning the trade, etc. The plot twists in There are a lot of underdog stories about kids trying to make in the big leagues of whatever their passion is; in this case Kabuki theater.
The plot twists in a gut-wrenching way near the end, which makes the story all the better. Fine kids' novel, if a little disturbing in places. There were a lot of characters to follow, but the main ones were Jiro, a son of a puppet maker, who wants to be a puppeteer and also survive after his family has suffered from starvation. He makes a good friend named Kinshi, the son of the head puppeteer.

Jiro starts to learn his new trade with others while he begins to uncover more and more of what is going around in town.
This was an interesting story, indeed. I believe the author did a lot of research before actually writing this, because it is pieced together and done well in regards to the culture of that time. My sons however, felt this story was so sad. They liked it, but didn't want such a sad story. I didn't feel it was as sad as they thought, but it had a few sad aspects. The way the book was structured fell upon the lines of, Jiro, the main character in the story and how his choices came with unintended consequences.
The book was based on the Feudal times in Osaka, Japan around the s, along with the shortages of supplies characters in the book are described as people who will do anything to get something that they are eager for.
There are many other themes that are explored through the book for example is the hardships between families. Spoiler Alert!! At the beginning of the book, Jiro and his mother never got a long, but at the end they did. This gave a message of resemblance of all the families out there who are split apart. Another themes that are explored are the etiquettes and traditions that people show to one another, what people do when they are in need for something.
Personally, I think that the story develops very slowly. Katherine Paterson could have ended the story 2 chapters quicker without adding scenes for example; the starting of chapter 5 was not really needed.
There is not much suspense in the book, if there are any questions that are stuck in your brain, the answer would usually be in the next chapter or on the next page.
The Master Puppeteer is obviously another top choice in the books that middle schoolers read. The tale of Sabura, a Japanese Robin Hood, takes from the rich to help the exceptionally poor in the Japanese medieval time.
Jiro,an understudy, gain's from the manikin expert's child Kinshi the exchange of both making and utilizing delightful manikins for amusement. As the hungry group hordes and the powers irately look for the genuine character of Sabura, Jiro is gotten in the center between Yoshida The Master Puppeteer is obviously another top choice in the books that middle schoolers read.
As the hungry group hordes and the powers irately look for the genuine character of Sabura, Jiro is gotten in the center between Yoshida his expert and his crew. With incredible anticipation consolidated with authentic fiction, it is a flawless book for middle school level novel that serves as an impeccable prologue to Japanese society for kids.
This is a Japanese version of Robin Hood and anyone who likes that type of story would enjoy reading this book. The plot winds in an awful manner close to the end, but it turns out to improve the story all the. Overall, I think this book was full of chronicled fiction and Japanese writing. This book showed a lot of understanding into the life of a common Japanese kid during this century. It examined the social ills of that time period and the issues the normal Japanese family confronted and also displayed the very common hardships that this young man confronted.
All the more vitally anyway, I think it gave a decent depiction of the Japanese theater and its operations. The main disadvantage to this is that for most perusers who are unfamiliar with the Japanese traditions and societies, it doesn't show that much capacity to gain a deep and accurate information on it.
At least ten years have passed since I last read this book and couldn't remember a thing about it although I do remember reading Of Nightingales That Weep in which the protagonist was a girl. In this second of Paterson's historical fiction novels, set in 18th century Japan, a young boy is driven by hunger and his family's desperate poverty to apprentice himself to a puppet theater.
He makes friends with the other boys, particularly the theater owner's son, and is a quick enough learner to earn a At least ten years have passed since I last read this book and couldn't remember a thing about it although I do remember reading Of Nightingales That Weep in which the protagonist was a girl. He makes friends with the other boys, particularly the theater owner's son, and is a quick enough learner to earn a promotion from curtain puller to foot operator. Meanwhile, a Robin Hood-type character anonymously stirs up revolts by robbing the rich food merchants and distributing the food to the hungry poor.
Older readers won't have much trouble discerning the true identity of this character and figuring out the mystery. With all the foreign names in this large cast of characters to keep track of, it can be hard to keep everyone straight. The story drags in places before a rushed ending earns this book the two star rating I gave it. It is merely OK for anyone curious to learn more about the history and culture of Japan and for being a suitable enough story for readers of all ages.
This is not Katherine Paterson's best book but luckily she has many other excellent works of children's literature out there for readers to discover and enjoy. I recommend those first. AR: 5. The master puppeteer, Yoshida, is cruel to his son, Kinshi, but everyone else he treats fairly, if strictly. Most important, there is always enough food at Hanaza, though many others are starving in Osaka.

Kinshi and the blind old chanter, Okada, are kind to Jiro, but the boy worries about his ill father and his hungry mother, especially when he realizes that she is in one of the roving bands rioting in the streets.
This short book offers considerable information on Japanese history and culture as well as a very respectable mystery. Like The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn, it is likely to be a hard sell due to period and place, but is worth a try. This novel is a fictions mystery about a puppeteer apprentice named Jiro who tries to discover the secret of a master thief named Saburo. Jiro lives during a time of great famine, set in Osaka, Japan in the 's. There are many people who are struggling to survive. Jiro takes up a puppeteering apprentice with a strict and evil man named Yoshida, and discovers that there is a connection between Saburo, the thief, and Yoshida, his evil master.
Saburo is a Robin Hood like figure who has been stea This novel is a fictions mystery about a puppeteer apprentice named Jiro who tries to discover the secret of a master thief named Saburo. Saburo is a Robin Hood like figure who has been stealing rice from the aristocrats who have been ruling unfairly and he gives the stolen rice to the poor who need it. As Jiro goes through this coming of age story, he not only goes on a quest to find his own identity, but to also find out about his parents.
This journey leads Jiro unlocking secrets that provide the climax for the book. Reader's who are interested in a foreign culture, like Japanese culture, will find this book interesting.
