Description

Percy Jackson meets Hayao Miyazaki in this contemporary twist on a Japanese folktale, now in paperback. An Asian American boy discovers the powers that are his birthright when he goes on a quest to save his father from monsters that are wreaking havoc on the earth. Zusammenfassung Xander Miyamoto would rather do almost anything than listen to his sixth grade teacher! Mr. Stedman! drone on about weather disasters happening around the globe. If Xander could do stuff he's good at instead! like draw comics and create computer programs! and if Lovey would stop harassing him for being half Asian! he might not be counting the minutes until the dismissal bell. When spring break begins at last! Xander plans to spend it playing computer games with his best friend! Peyton. Xander's father briefly distracts him with a comic book about some samurai warrior that pops out of a peach pit. Xander tosses it aside! but Peyton finds it more interesting. Little does either boy know that the comic is a warning. They are about to be thrust into the biggest adventure of their lives-a journey wilder than any Xander has ever imagined! full of weird monsters even worse than Lovey. To win at this deadly serious game they will have to rely on their wits! courage! faith! and especially! each other. Maybe Xander should have listened to Mr. Stedman about the weather after all. . . .

Résumé

Xander Miyamoto would rather do almost anything than listen to his sixth grade teacher, Mr. Stedman, drone on about weather disasters happening around the globe. If Xander could do stuff he's good at instead, like draw comics and create computer programs, and if Lovey would stop harassing him for being half Asian, he might not be counting the minutes until the dismissal bell.

When spring break begins at last, Xander plans to spend it playing computer games with his best friend, Peyton. Xander's father briefly distracts him with a comic book about some samurai warrior that pops out of a peach pit. Xander tosses it aside, but Peyton finds it more interesting.

Little does either boy know that the comic is a warning. They are about to be thrust into the biggest adventure of their lives-a journey wilder than any Xander has ever imagined, full of weird monsters even worse than Lovey. To win at this deadly serious game they will have to rely on their wits, courage, faith, and especially, each other. Maybe Xander should have listened to Mr. Stedman about the weather after all. . . .
