Pub. Date:
This book is written in the form of an interview. It probes into the life of Marco Polo and asks the sort of questions that children would want to ask whilst providing a wealth of background information. This biography tells the story of Marco Polo's epic journey along the Silk Road to the court of Kublai Khan in China.The stories of his travels opened up a world which people knew very little about, and inspired many great explorers to follow in his famous footsteps. In this book, the explorer and trader is asked for example, what his scariest moment was and what he liked best about China? It is one of a series which takes a personal look at the lives of historical figures and is illustrated with double spread artworks which make children feel they are seeing photographs from the character's lives. There are also maps of the routes the explorers took.
