Samurai Kids 7: Red Fox

By Sandy Fussell
Illustrated by Rhian Nest James

The seventh and second-last instalment in a unique series about a special group of kids training in the ways of the samurai.

On the way to India, the Sea Dragon is shipwrecked. Niya is washed up on a deserted beach, fearing that his friends may all be dead. He is reunited with Chen, but the other Little Cockroaches are nowhere to be found. Niya and Chen soon learn there is only one path their friends would have taken. It leads through the dangerous jungle to the decaying temple city of Angkor. Who has survived? Will the samurai kids ever be the same again?
