Unaffected by magic himself, Jiho Park lives in a kingdom governed by fantastical forces. He comes from a long line of forest rangers charged with protecting the Kidahara, a shadowy magical wood. Jiho has been determined to break out of the family profession ever since his father disappeared in the forest five years ago—the same fate that befell Princess Koko, the ruling family’s only daughter. With the grief-stricken king distracted, another member of the royal family calls in a foreign company to tear the Kidahara down. In this exhilarating fantasy inspired by Korean mythology, Jiho and a group of new friends must attempt to save their world from dark forces rising outside and within. Ages 9-12. Ellen Oh, co-founder of We Need Diverse Books, will be in conversation with Ron Smith and Hena Khan.
