One thought on “Bamboo Sword, by Margi Preus

  1. I really thought this book was well-written and exciting! I ended up reading it twice and it didn’t make me think any less of it. I enjoyed the story line and the characters most. The plot was very interesting and I liked the things that the characters did. I didn’t feel like this was a Newbery, but I think it is a very fun read.
