Grade 7 Up—This manhwa is a fantasy/romance about Myung-Ee, who is a boy-obsessed fifth grader crushing on the older pretty boys when she has a run-in with classmate Yu-Da Lee. Soon after their confrontation, she discovers that he has the same strange affliction she does: his eyes turn red at night. It turns out that they are "Earth Rabbits" who once lived on the moon but escaped extinction and their mortal enemy, the "Fox Tribe." The trouble is that these foxes are also here on Earth and it's rabbit season. Fast forward to high school. Myung-Ee is starting at a new school and there she finds her old friend Yu-Da, but he doesn't remember her. He hangs out with the popular kids, who are really part of the Fox Tribe, and they are guarding him because he is a rare "Black Rabbit" and his mature liver when eaten will give the foxes immortality. Myung-Ee has an ally in Mr. Taekwon V of the Soon-La Army, sworn enemy of the Fox Tribe, and together they might be able to save Yu-Da. The story is fast paced with a few laughs. All the characters are easy to differentiate and likable, especially Myung-Ee, whose spunkiness will endear her to readers. With the usual cliff-hanger ending, this volume will fly off the shelves.—Melissa T. Jenvey, New York Public Library

In this engaging graphic novel, fifth grade, boy-crazy Myung-Ee meets the one guy who, while not meeting her astronomical standards for height and beauty, is the first to tug at her heart. Irritatingly, Yu-da is immune to her charms, but it turns out they do have a connection: both are unknowingly moon rabbits, creatures hidden so long in human form that they have forgotten what they really are. Unfortunately, their natural predators, moon foxes, have not forgotten them and are delighted to find such a delectable pair. Tragedy is averted, but when Myung-Ee meets Yu-da five years later, surrounded by the enemy, he doesn't remember her or their true identities. Myung-Ee's determination and spunk make her a formidable savior for Yu-da. The artwork, full of deep shadows and disintegrating panels, subtly builds suspense. Characters manage to be elegant and goofy, just as manga fans wish, and though the tale follows a familiar magical destiny formula, the humor and art push it ahead of the pack. Robin Brenner
