Dear Librarian:

We know how important reading is to a child's development, but with all the immediate distractions in the modern world it can be difficult to engage young people in the activity of reading.

My answer is to 'keep it real' and show kids how books can live and breathe from the page! Check out my Young Samurai tour to the States to see what I mean:

With THE WAY OF THE SWORD, not only will they read a great action-adventure story, but they can experience Jack and Akiko's world first hand by participating in martial arts, discussing & role-playing etiquette and language, designing their own kimono, eating sushi and even organising a Japanese festival!

A Teacher and Librarians' guide free to download is available at: The Way of the Sword:

I hope you will follow Jack and Akiko's award-winning adventures at

Sayonara (Bye!)
