A thrilling time travel adventure from Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Linda Sue Park.
Twelve-year-old Kevin Kim is shocked when a young man, complete with bow and arrows, crash-lands on his bedroom floor—especially when that man, Skillful Archer, claims to be a legendary ruler from ancient Korea. As much as Kevin enjoys teaching Archie about contemporary life and learning about Korean history from Archie’s stories, Kevin needs to help Archie get back home—or history will be changed forever.
This exciting middle grade novel is from Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park, whose beloved books include A Single Shard and A Long Walk to Water.
