Peasprout Chen

A Taiwanese-inspired middle grade fantasy series about a young girl’s quest to become a champion of Wu Liu, an art form that blends figure skating with martial arts.

“It’s Hermione Granger meets ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ meets the Ice Capades meets ‘Mean Girls.’” For all its disparate ingredients, though, PEASPROUT CHEN: FUTURE LEGEND OF SKATE AND SWORD speaks in a single, strong voice, thanks to its spirited heroine.” —The New York Times
