The Door to the Spirit World: Youngho and Chadori by B.K. Chu | Book Review | RachelPoli.com

This children’s book follows a Korean boy around Christmas time. It’s a cute story for pre-teens, though it’s a sad one.

I enjoy reading children’s books and love exploring the spirit world so this one intrigued me. Except, there wasn’t any spirit exploration at all. This is a quick read only being a little over 100 pages. This is meant to be a trilogy but this particular book was all set-up and no execution for anything.

We get a good sense of Youngho and his life along with his dog, Chadori. However, the plot that’s described in the title and the blurb isn’t carried through. Something happens in the final chapter, leaving the book at a cliffhanger, and setting it up for book two.

Overall, the context of the story was pretty good and the writing was great. It’s certainly easy for kids to read and the colored illustrations were charming. I just wish the plot was executed better and more things happened in the story. Still, I’ll look forward to seeing book two.
