Diary of Princess: A Tale from Marco Polo’s Travels by Heather Maisner, illustrated by Sheila Moxley [in AsianWeek]

Diary of a PrincessA fictional diary that the young Princess Kokachin might have written in the late-13th century, when she traveled from the court of the Mongol leader Kublai Khan in her native China to marry the widowed Khan of Persia. Amazingly, she is escorted by none other than the legendary Marco Polo, who served as an ambassador in Kublai Khan’s court, and becomes a surrogate father figure to Kokachin on their two-year journey.
