Description

Newbery Award-winning author Linda Sue Park's The Firekeeper's Son received a starred review in Publishers Weekly. Sanghee's father lights a bonfire on top of the mountain near their Korean village every night. It is a signal to the next mountain, where another fire is lit as a signal to the next mountain, and so on all the way to the King's palace. If the first isn't lit, the others won't be lit, and the King will know that trouble has come to the land. One evening, Sang-hee notices that the fire is not lit. Has trouble come?

Professional reviews

""We live in an important village," Sang-hee's father tells him, and we have an important job: Each night the firekeeper must carry a brass pot filled with coals to the top of the mountain, lighting a special bonfire that signals to others along the Korean mountain chain that all is well in the land. When Sang-hee's father hurts his ankle, Sang-hee must take over the job for his father. Norm Lee narrates this Korean folk tale; Lee is a steady and even reader who's careful and emotionally circumspect--he conveys much through simple changes in tone and pace. His reading nicely captures Sang-hee's temptation (if the boy fails to light the fire, the king's soldiers will come to see what's wrong, which would be exciting), as well as the power of responsibility and tradition that ultimately prompts Sang-hee to become a trustworthy firekeeper.
