World Bank 2006Description: Various pagings Passage. 2ISBN: 9780821364062Subject(s): Poverty | HIV/AIDS-The FactsDDC classification: 330.9 Summary: Fifteen-year-old orphan Rei survives by his wits and guts on the mean streets of the world. His fortunes take a strange turn whhen he meets a trainer wielding some powerful transformational magic who offers to coach him to achieve his dream of becoming the greatest martial artist in the world! But it seems Rei's trainer is more interested in developing his mind, spirit and--ugh!--heart than his thrashing, raging, fighting moves! Now Rei's training journey takes him to the neon lights of the big city, where he meets some cool guys with smooth moves, and falls head-over-heels for a feisty young cocktail waitress! But the woman he loves is hiding a terrible family secret... Manga are Japanese-style comics or graphic novels which have become the rage among young readers around the world. Teaming up with Viz, a leading English-language manga publisher, the Bank has launched a new series of comic books, each highlighting a key development issue. The stories follow the adventures of 15-year-old Rei who discovers that the only way to become a true warrior is to understand the challenges facing the poor and disadvantaged people he befriends along the way. Rei's humorous side-kick is a wise 'spirit guide' which morphs into different animal guises as it introduces Rei to each new challenge. An appendix in each book provides further information, websites, and other resources so readers can explore the themes introduced in the story.
