Review

"Tokoyo, The Samurai's Daughter is a dramatic, adventurous story reflecting the legends and tales of Japan in medieval times. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended!" - Historical Novel Reviews, Issue #82

Purchase Rating: ADVISABLE. "The story of Tokoyo illustrates several Japanese ancient traditions, including samurai honor, ancestor worship, and mythology. I love that such a short story can still reveal the beauty of a different culture. Following Tokoyo's quest to save her father teaches readers of honor, love, and sacrifice. Furthermore, the illustrator, Kayla Gilliam, does a fantastic job." - Kiss the Book: Reviews for School Librarians

"...an intriguing story featuring a strong female as the central character. Set in 14th Century Japan, the books reads as a combination of historical fiction and fantasy adventure. The chapters are suspenseful and this short chapter book should appeal to "tween age" boys and girls alike. Kayla Gilliam's black and white illustrations enhance the book perfectly." - Multicultural Children's Book Day

"Add this to your power girl reading list: Girls, martial arts training, and sea demons? Sign me up. We need MORE Asian characters, so what is the publishing world waiting for?" - An Unconventional Librarian

"The story is a winner from the start...It is both thought-provoking and likely to encourage young readers to seek more knowledge and a greater understanding of the world around them." - Middle Grade Minded

"It was outstanding! You are swept away not only by the beautiful storytelling, but also the wonderful illustrations. [It's] a remarkable illustrated middle-grade book that is incredibly inspiring and touching. I highly recommend reading it!" - Bookish Delights

"Tokoyo is both strong-willed and talented...Just by looking at the cover you can see the determination in her eyes. She is also quite brave and a lovely heroine. There are lovely black and white illustrations by Kayla Gilliam and I especially enjoyed the addition of the Cultural notes which provided the definition of the Japanese words used in the story as well as the Author's note at the end of the book." - Log Cabin Library

"Tokoyo [comes] through as a strong, independent and courageous young woman...Overall an entertaining read that will impress readers ages 8 to 10." - Three Show Saturday

"A short yet fascinating book that captures that spirit of a young girl in 14th century Japan. I really enjoyed the character development and overall story." - The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia

"I loved that Tokoyo, the Samurai's Daughter was all about Tokoyo. Her abilities and determination were what carried her through... Overall, the pace of the novel is fantastic, the prose is near perfect, and the story was an engaging one. Kayla Gilliam provides simple illustrations that spice up the text every few chapters and provide a treat for the eyes." - Rosie Amber

"There are dangers, trials, struggles, surprises, and a whole lot of heart... I enjoyed the tale told, the traditions shared, and the values celebrated...A great read for the younger adventurer in your life or those young at heart." - Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers

"My son, Michael, aged eleven years old...loved this book so much that he actually read on ahead by himself which is very unusual." - Robbie's Inspiration
