A rewriting of a CYOA book from the 1990s, this--like many CYOA books--is an exciting way for a young reader to experience Ancient Chinese history by inhabiting the experience of a boy living through the Tang Dynasty. The title may put off readers wary of Asian stereotypes, and it was written by a non-Asian, but care was certainly taken to make it an accurate depiction of 7th century China.

This book could be used in any lesson on the Mongol invasions or any other aspects of ancient Asian history. It's a shame that the book included no guided lesson starters or glossary as some other CYOA books do. ( )
