Tells the tale of Marco Polo's famous trip to the Far East from the point of view of a servant who gets to accompany them. The read is asked to imagine themselves in the shoes of the servant as Marco, his father and his uncle face innumerable crises and hurdles in their trip east.

Again, this series likes to focus on the shocking and/or gross facts from the story to pull in the reluctant reader. Full of comic style illustrations, it is a must for teachers studying Chinese history or the history of explorers.
