Summary

At the age of five, Takeshi joins the other youngsters in a samurai's castle to train as a noble fighter.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The lighthearted tone and abundant cartoon-style illustrations of the books in the How to Live Like . . . series bring some of history's most exciting professions to life. Each sets the scene with the appropriate time and place before introducing a fictional figure to guide readers through the lifestyle or training required for these positions; cultural and historical context pads out the narrative. A Samurai Warrior takes a peek at the weapons, armor, and fighting techniques of these famous Japanese fighters. These high-interest titles read like graphic novels, and although their information is relatively light (and uncited), they are perfect for piquing interest and engaging reluctant readers though a girl guide or two would have been welcome.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"
