Book Description

Imagine you've just moved to a new country, started a new school, and are juggling a whole bunch of new friends. The last thing you need is to travel back in time to one of the bloodiest battles in Japanese history! 
Life in Tokyo isn't easy for Bella Feet. She's struggling at her new school, she makes a fool of herself in Kendo class... and then when she wanders backstage at an old theatre she finds herself face to face with a dead samurai. Bella quickly learns that you might not be able to change history, but you can certainly learn from it.
In the second book in the Bella & Burton Misadventures Series, the twins explore past and present Japan and meet the 47 Ronin. 


Bella & Burton Feet don't go looking for trouble ... but it always finds them. Follow the expat twins from country to country, from adventure to outrageous adventure, in Bella & Burton's Misadventures. Published by Itchee Feet, this unique series is written by bestselling author and international school teacher, Stephen Skelton, and combines his love of travel with his Maori storytelling roots, bringing a fresh twist to some of the world's greatest tales and into the hearts of a new generation of children. For 7-11-year-olds.

Editorial Reviews


"The Feet family and their various adventures are set to become bestsellers among expat children who have, up until now, been somewhat overlooked by the literary world.... Not only can these books encourage children to read more, they are also a superb way of helping children adjust to a life spent constantly on the move." -- The Expat Magazine Malaysia

From the Author

I have been working with expat and third culture kids for many years, so I was thrilled when I was approached to write this innovative new series for Itchee Feet. I look forward to hearing what you think.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Adventure Story for Grils and Boys! September 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bella and Burton Feet are on another adventure! The Feet family travels to Japan and the kids hear a story being told about the Ronin Samurai of Japan. Bella gets so involved in listening to the story that she literally gets brought into the story. Burton, who wasn't listening as closely gets kidnapped into the story by an evil ninja that works for an evil samurai named Kira. While in the story Bella gets trained in the ways of the samurai, learns about ancient Japan, and gets determined to save Burton from the evil Kira. Can Bella save Burton and manage to get them back home?

This book is one book in a series of books that follow the Feet family and their travels around the world. I thought this was a great adventure book. I liked the samurai and ninjas in it and learning about them. The story is based on the real-life Ronin samurai (and there were 47 of them) that lived in the 1700s in Japan and I thought that was cool. Bella and Burton were like an ordinary brother and sister, they bickered teased but also cared a lot about each other. They were very believable. The simple illustrations in the book were a nice addition. The book was written for younger kids, but I think older kids will also like it. It was a quick read for me and I would have liked a little more details in the story, but overall it was very enjoyable. I like the travel part of the series. I like it when book teach about different lands and cultures.

I loved this book. Based on the myth of the 47 Ronin, it's really original way to introduce contemporary Japan & it's history to kids. Totally brings the legend to life. My nephew adored it too. Excellent read!
