Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Park molds a moving tribute to perseverance and creativity in this finely etched novel set in mid-to-late 12th century Korea…Readers will not soon forget these characters or their sacrifices.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Intrigues, danger, and the same strong focus on doing what is right turn a simple story into a compelling read. . . . A timeless jewel. Kirkus Reviews, Starred
“This book not only gives readers insight an unfamiliar time and place, but it is also a great story.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“This quiet, but involving story draws readers into a very different time and place. Though the society has its own conventions, the hearts and minds and stomachs of the characters are not so far removed from those of people today. Readers will feel the hunger and cold that Tree-ear experiences, as well as his shame, fear, gratitude, and love. A well-crafted novel with an unusual setting.” Booklist (starred review)
