From

A Korean variation of the Cinderella story, Pigling follows the life of Pear Blossom, a devoted daughter who enjoys her parents’ attention. After her mother dies, her widowed father remarries a cunning woman who, along with her daughter, moves into their home and makes life miserable for the girl. When Pear Blossom crouches down to scrub the floor, her stepsister remarks that she looks piglike, and a horrific nickname is born. As her father ails and the atrocities against his daughter continue, Pear Blossom communes with nature and uses magic to trick her stepmother and stepsister, and eventually she catches the eye of a handsome magistrate. In a proverbial ending, Pear Blossom finds happiness again. 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. Grades 3-6. --Allyson Lyga
