The Missing White Dragon

Friday, December 1, 2006  By  Jennifer Webb     No comments

Eastern and western fairy tales mingle with the real world in this collection of five magical stories by Park Young Ha. Each one is a satisfying blend of romance and adventure, featuring plucky heroines, scheming sorcerers, and visitors from other realms (both helpful and mischievous). In the title story, a young aristocrat forced into an arranged marriage with a demon girl finds an unlikely ally in his new fiancée. In “Dispel Magic”, a modern day wanna-be witch needs help from her best friend (and a local warlock) to get out of a magical mishap. Talking animals, fairy servants, and spells that misfire all add to the charm (what do you do when you summon a magical nightingale and it comes out as a chicken?), and the art is a perfect match for the eclectic mix of humor and fantasy. The Missing White Dragon is a must for fairy tale and fantasy fans in need of a quick vacation from the mundane.
