Staff Reviews


This is a sweet, modern folktale about being little, but showing that you can still do big things. Soe-in is the smallest of her village, but she has great confidence in the fact she thinks she can find out why the sun as disappeared by confronting the Spirit Tiger. Cha’s lovely illustrations have color and details popping out on each page. Includes information about the tiger in Korean culture. — Jeanette

Description


A young Korean girl must come up with a clever idea to help a spirit tiger who has swallowed the sun by mistake in this fun, charming debut picture book from author-illustrator Hanna Cha.

Soe-In is a tiny child in a village full of large people. She struggles with completing chores due to her size, but she never gives up.

One day, when the sky grows dark and full of smoke, Soe-In volunteers to travel into the tall mountains to investigate. She’s surprised to find a spirit tiger there and learn he has swallowed the sun by mistake!

To help the spirit tiger and her village, Soe-In must come up with a clever idea to solve this gigantic problem. And while she’s at it, she just may prove that the smallest people often have the biggest, bravest hearts.

* "This gorgeous and moving debut from Cha is a worthwhile addition to any picture-book collection."
— Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"Plucky Soe-In may be extra tiny, but her confidence and resourcefulness should earn her a large space on library shelves everywhere."
— School Library Journal

"Cha's debut picture book captures the bold ethos of an ancient Korean legend with sparkling energy, dramatic fires, and giant tigers....A bold and mythic female underdog tale."
— Kirkus Reviews

"This picture book will be a favorite as a read-aloud or during individual quiet time. Recommended."
— School Library Connection

"[Hanna Cha's] richly hued spreads swirl with inviting action, her tiger-themed panels especially burst forth in flaming swaths of gold, orange, brown and black strokes, as if the tiger's energy can hardly be contained on the printed page."
