Archer’s Quest, by Linda Sue Park

September 19, 2008

Kevin, a middle schooler or a little younger, is a Korean American boy bored with just about everything, and has an ambivalent relationship with his math-genius father. By magic, the legendary Korean archer, Koh Chu-mong, from ancient Korean history (Koguryo period) appears in his room. In their quest to return Koh to his time and place, Kevin learns important lessons that will bring discipline and interest back into the everyday chores of school, and establish a new and exciting connection with his Korean heritage, and his father.
