    DESCRIPTION Dan Jolley
    From a life filled with heartache and hardship, comes an unmatched beauty destined for a fairy-tale ending: Pear Blossom, a young Korean girl, leads a happy life with her parents—until her mother dies and her father remarries. Her new wicked stepmother and stepsister make Pear Blossom the victim of their cruelty. They give her the nickname Pigling, or little pig, and do everything they can to torture her. But soon, magical creatures come to Pear Blossom’s aid—and one day, the girl meets a handsome magistrate. Will Pear Blossom’s luck change for the better? Or is she destined to suffer at her stepfamily’s hands forever?

    "This Korean tale is another version of the Cinderella story. The colorful and dramatic paintings depict the homes and lifestyles of ancient Koreans."

    Booklist
    "This graphic-novel adaptation is a fine marriage of art and text, neither outshining the other. Emotions emanate from facial expressions, especially evident in Pear Blossom's gradual emotional change, which helps draw readers into the story, and brightly colored panels further enhance the experience. A delightful read from the Graphic Myths & Legends series."
