Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Fifteen well-known young adult authors retell myths and legends from a variety of Asian countries and regions. Ghosts, androids, demons, and avatars make an appearance in this anthology. Each story is followed by a short essay in which the authors discuss the origins of their retold myths. This collection fills a gap in modern retellings of fairy tales and myths by presenting non-European myths. With stories that cover the science fiction, fantasy, contemporary, and paranormal genres, there is something for everyone. Alyssa Wong takes the Chinese hungry ghost festival and places it in the American Southwest. Lori M. Lee's retelling of the Hmong folktale "The Woman and the Tiger" involves an android who experiences emotions. Preeti Chhibber's tale of the Hindu festival Navrati takes place in a gym in New Jersey and demonstrates how revenge can be bittersweet. In "Code of Honor," a Filipino aswang—similar to a vampire—attends high school. Give to fans of Marissa Meyer's "Lunar Chronicles" or Rick Riordan's Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. VERDICT An excellent first purchase for all libraries.—Jenni Frencham, formerly at Columbus Public Library, WI --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.


A marvelous anthology of retold Asian myths and legends tying the traditional and modern together and accessible to all teens of all backgrounds.
