Pranks and Attacks!

Pranks and Attacks!
Tao: The Little Samurai #1
by Laurent Richard
illustrated by Nicolas Ryser
Hardcover, 63 pages
Published January 1st 2014 by Graphic Universe 
Tao is an energetic (sometimes) little guy at samurai school. He causes all sorts of mayhem and laughter as he interacts with his fellows students and instructors. His antics are somewhat reminiscent of Dennis the Menace. Despite the setting of a samurai school, the situations he gets himself into will resonate with many young readers. Each page is it's own little vignette of Tao's life. They start with a wise samurai adage that illustrates Tao's personality perfectly. The illustrations are a perfect fit and will entertain readers of all ages. Young fans of Big Nate and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will appreciate these volumes as well.
