Fantastic suspen The Master Puppeteer is of course another favorite. Fantastic suspense combined with historical fiction.

Karena saya kurang mengenal karya-karya Katherine Paterson sebelumnya, yang pertama menarik perhatian saya pada buku ini sebenarnya adalah warna covernya yang biru, benar-benar birunya biru — solid cobalt blue — ditambah gambar boneka Jepang yang khas.
Tapi setelah diperhatikan, ternyata ada gambar latar belakang teater yang menggambarkan rumah-rumah yang terbakar dan yang out of place foto seorang bocah yang sedang berjalan. Sebenarnya -IMHO- tanpa foto bocah itu, rasanya ilustrasi cover-nya malah jadi lebih pas lo: View all 3 comments. Apr 01, Karen rated it it was ok Shelves: While this was an interesting look at life in feudal Japan, it was too ambitious an undertaking for such a small book.
There weren’t enough pages to focus on all of the whys and wherefores so it was sometimes confusing – why did Jiro’s father leave his mother? Paterson did a lot of research to write this book and she really wanted the reader to know that but it came off like an outsider writing about something that wasn’t really hers While this was an interesting look at life in feudal Japan, it was too ambitious an undertaking for such a small book.
Paterson did a lot of research to write this book and she really wanted the reader to know that but it came off like an outsider writing about something that wasn’t really hers to write about; it often felt forced and awkward. I never felt drawn into the story. It galloped at full speed in the last few pages to clear up so many loose ends and Paterson’s efforts to create an unnecessary element of suspense just served to confuse me even more – why did Osaka corner Jiro in the attic in such menacing fashion when he really had no intention of harming him and why on earth did Kinshi’s hand get cut off?
It may have been a better book if it had been about just the puppet theater culture or just the Sabura legend but everything together just created a mash-up that I couldn’t quite sink my teeth into. Oct 13, Timothyl rated it it was amazing. There are a lot of underdog stories about kids trying to make in the big leagues of whatever their passion is; in this case Kabuki theater.

The plot twists in a gut-wrenching way near the end, which makes the story all the better. Fine kids’ novel, if a little disturbing in places.
