In this new Merlin Mission adventure, Annie and Jack visit seventeenth-century Japan to find the secret of happiness for their aging magician mentor, Merlin. The quest's abstract impetus is handily balanced with adventure--the kids meet the poet Basho, dodge samurai, and ride a dragon--the most dramatic moments of which are capably captured in Murdocca's black-and-white illustrations.
