Audience: 3rd Grade - 7th Grade
I had not really read about Marco Polo before. This book relates happenings in his early childhood. He did not meet his father until he was 15. His father and uncle had been exploring and buying goods throughout the world as it was known in the 1200's. Marco Polo begged to accompany them on the next voyage and wrote the memories of his travels to the far reaches of the world. Most travel at that time was taken by boat, but the Polo men also made long distance travel by camel caravans overland to China. Demi created detailed illustrations to help present an enjoyable read.
