Title: Archers QuestAuthor: Linda Sue ParkIllustrator: Greg CallPublisher: Clarion BooksNumber of pages: 167Archers Quest is a great book! The author’s name is Linda Sue Park and the illustrator’s name is Greg Call. The publisher is Clarion Books and there are 167 pages. I definitely suggest kids aged 8-12 stick their nose into this wonderful story. The writing was very descriptive. At one point, when the author describes crossing a freeway, I felt like I was actually on the freeway.This book is about Chu-mong, an Asian ruler and well known archer. His character lives in the past and somehow ends up in the present where he crashes through Kevin’s bedroom window. Kevin, who is home alone when Chu-mong crashes through his window, tries to get back Chu-mong back to his time period without Kevin’s parents finding out. Kevin gives Chu-mong the nickname “Archer”. Kevin, who is Korean, lives in America. He turns to Mr. Lee, an archeologist, to answer questions about the past. Mr. Lee, curious as to why he needed the information, follows Kevin and Chu-mong. In his quest to return Chu-mong to his era, Kevin uses the zodiac to complete this weird task.I personally enjoyed the zodiac at the end. It was interesting how the information was organized. This book is so great, I didn’t dislike anything! Characters:Chu-mong- a co-main character, well-known archer and king from a long time ago. Also known as Archer.Kevin- a co-main character, who helped Chu-mong get back to his time period.Mr. Lee- an archaeologist who studies Asian artifacts.
