About this title

Synopsis:

The Missing White Dragon is a wonderful compilation of the most popular Asian folk tales and select portions of history, retold with an exotic touch of romance. Reading this book not only introduces fans to the culture of Asia, but it also gives readers insight to the bedtime stories Asian parents often tell their children at night. In essence, this beautifully written anthology shows fans the influential stories Asian children hear just as Americans children would be told fairy tales such as Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel & Gretel.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up-A collection of Asian folktales and urban legends. Some of the best stories in the volume are the title piece and "A Magician's Proposal." In "The Missing White Dragon," a young man is forced into an arranged marriage with a demon girl, though both love others from their past. Over time, they discover they had met long ago, and that they are one another's true love. Though this story sounds predictable, there is a surprising twist at the end. In "The Magician's Proposal" a young fairy tries to redirect her master's romantic attentions toward her while he tries to woo a princess. This tale offers highly comedic elements and is quite compelling. The other selections are still notable, though they try to utilize American slang in Asian period pieces, which can be somewhat jarring. However, for what is sometimes lacking in writing is fully made up for in illustrations. A strong artist with a promising career, Young-Ha Park is one to watch.-Jennifer Feigelman, Plattekill Public Library, Modena, NY
