The Sign Of the Chrysanthemum

by Paterson, Katherine

The Sign of the Chrysanthemum is a 1973 work of children's literature that marked the publishing debut of U.S. novelist Katherine Paterson. The novel is set in 12th century Japan and tells the story of Muna, a 14-year-old who searches for his long-absent father following his mother’s death. Muna has never seen his father, and only knows that he is a samurai with a chrysanthemum tattoo. He meets a likable ronin named Takanobu. Takanobu finds him a job cleaning stables.
