Rogel, a little angel from the Paradise Star, was handsome, gentle and brave. By chance he met Kally, who had been imprisoned in a heavenly lake for three thousand years because he wanted to conquer the Earth. Having realized his folly, he was now truly repentant. Rogel and Yoyo, a red-haired fox, started their journey to look for the Goddess of Liberty who had the power to free Kally. On their way, they defeated various kinds of demons, devils and ghosts by virtue of their wisdom and bravery. They saved many kind-hearted people - kings, princesses, dwarfs, and poor villagers - and received their help in return.
At last, Rogel, Yoyo and Hont, a little prince from Moon Land whom they met on the way, arrived at Liberty Island, but a snake fiend was plotting against them, trying to prevent Rogel from achieving his noble goal. How will Rogel ignite the Goddess¡¯s torch with a holy spark? And will he succeed in obtaining the golden key to freedom from the Goddess of Liberty?
The first book ever written by a Chinese author on the Statue of Liberty, The Holy Spark advances themes of faithfulness, kindheartedness, bravery, forbearance, and the triumph of good over evil. Inspiring and engaging, it is perfect for young readers and will keep them highly entertained for hours.

Yu Li was a designer and manager of a glassware company in Jilin province in northeast China. In 1986, she was inspired to write a children's book about the Statue of Liberty when she saw Lady Liberty on Chinese television covering the monument's centennial. She spent several years writing the fantasy-filled novel The Holy Spark and had its Chinese edition published in 1993.
With the help of an American diplomat in China, Yu Li came to the United States in 2001 to present a special 'deluxe' edition of the book to the Ellis Island Museum in New York, which inducted it into its permanent collection. Designed by Yu Li and signed by United Nations officials and representatives from more than 180 countries, the 'deluxe' edition of The Holy Spark is the only item the museum has ever sourced from China since World War II.
Yu Li now lives in New York, working on her new books.Review:
