Overview

Archer's Quest by Linda Sue Park


In Dorchester, New York, Kevin is doing his homework when suddenly an arrow comes out of nowhere and pins his baseball cap to the wall. The man who shot the arrow claims he fell off a tiger . . . and wound up in Kevin’s room. It’s not long before Kevin realizes that the man, who calls himself Chu-mong, or Great Archer, is no ordinary burglar, but a traveler from far away in both space and time.

A visit to the local museum confirms that there was a king named Chu-mong in ancient Korea who was legendary for many accomplishments, including exceptional skill with bow and arrow. Kevin knows little about his own Korean heritage, but he understands that unless Archer returns to his people and his throne, history will be changed forever. And he’s determined to help Archer go back, no matter what it takes.

Award-winning novelist Linda Sue Park has created a funny and suspenseful adventure, incorporating intriguing bits of Korean history and lore, that will captivate even reluctant readers and will add to her audience of devoted fans. Author’s note.

I though that this book was amazing and absorbing. Once I first started the book I though this is just gonna be this story about a boy who finds something out and then has to solve it. I almost rejected the book when I first read it but then I moved on and I found that once the second chracter finally came in I got hooked and I kept reading the storyline is just awesome. This book was historical and a few chracters had some flashbacks to the past. I recommend this book to anyone who likes some history, fantasy and kind of a mystery type book. If you do like all those I fully do suggest you read this book to anyone.
